My Sailing resume- sailing for 46 years from an 8' Sabot to 38' C&C
Landfall. Owned about 20 different keel
boats of several makes, raced some (1st. in the club for the year once- laser), sold
them. Sailed the New York
from St. Clair Lake, Michigan to NYC
, to Havana, Cuba
, to Marathon, Fl., from Hopetown, Bahamas
, Fl.,crossed Lake Ontario
four times, and Erie and the San Juans/Puget Sound/Vancouver Island many times. Miami
back to Panama
. Some of this is single
Expenses- Shared contribution. I don't expect it to cost a lot. Doing lots of motoring because of contrary winds for 1st part of journey. Before we leave, we visit a grocery store and stock up on food
supplies. I prefer to anchor
, and save on fees
rather than pay marinas
. But the boat
may need protection from thieves.
Passport acceptable for countries going through, valid of at least 7 or 8 months.*
Boat- Westerly 32, Fulmar sailboat, fin keel
, good reputation English
boat. As for heavy weather
, I can assure you that the boat can take it. I don't expect heavy, however, if it happens, we go to a 3rd reef asap, lash the tiller to port or starboard, and wait out the storm. My boat heaves to beautifully.
