I'm new here and about to purchase
my first sailing vessel. I'm trying to get over the line with the deal and would be looking to get underway as soon as everything (read the deal and mucking around with paperwork and time for voyage prep) can be put in place so as to make the window.
I would be joining for the crossing. About me, I'm a 34 yr old ex merchant mariner and have quite a few miles under my belt, but not under sail...hehe...so, Ideally, I'd like someone who can help me with training and skills on the way over. I'm also a pilot so I understand nav by DR / GPS
etc from two perspectives, the 'rules' and a bit about engineering/machinery/systems (though must confess I tried to avoid 'they who dwell down there').
About the boat
, its a (very) well equipped leopard
47. Details available.
Open to suggestions....
