At last!

Dear fellows,

We are now the proud owners of a Beneteau Oceanis 320 (1990).
Yesterday I and my wife made the maiden voyage and we are both very happy with the boat, her equipment, her performance and with life in general!

The plan now is to practice, practice and practice even more for the next 10 years, and then retire, buy a bigger boat and live aboard until we'll be too old to stay afloat (age or 90 or so... ).

Just wanted to share.

Cheers & fair winds,

Vinnie & Giuli

Re: At last!

Well done! You have tipped your toes over the edge of a steep and slippery slope. There is no recovery possible, so enjoy the ride... we sure have!
