Thank you. I have been back in France
since then. I have not given up the dream of sailing. My priority is to build or get another boat and try again. France
is frustrating... Heavy taxes
and bureaucracy; high unemployment. You can't do much here, everything is regulated or prohibited. It took me a while to revisit this forum or watch sailing channels on YouTube... The drive is still there though, getting stronger.
I have also been keeping myself active with my other hobby, amateur radio
. It kept me away from depression really. I hope to combine the two again, radio
and sailing, good combination.
