I'm intending to sail my 27fter from south coast of UK to Australia
starting between Mar and May of next year (2012)....my original thought was to sail single
hand to the Azores
as part of JC and then take on a couple of ppl to sail with me to Australia
...the alternative is to set off from UK with a crew...not really bothered either way I guess it depends on ppl etc...I am posting
quite early as I'd like to be able to sail a few weekends with interested people to at least see if we get along lol...
Bit about me, in my mid 30s, rather easy going and straight forward coast and country raised bloke (ex navy
have saild a few long passages, not been at sea for a while so plan is to leave the missus home (she doesnt like open water
, used to me not being there and agreed to meeting me at various ports
when I set off next year and sail back to my home town, Sydney
(and who knows maybe beyond...)
If anyone is mad/keen enough then would be great to hear from you, will be based in Portsmouth (she is currently in Preston so will be sailing her next month down to Portsmouth) and plan to sail her throughout the winter, then lift
before the big trip (so around March time) and take off shortly (ish) afterwards...
