Hello there cruisersforum!
For a while now I have been cruising these forums
and I learned a lot from you guys during that time. So I thought it would only be so fair to introduce myself to you guys.
Currently I'm a sailing loving student from the Netherlands
and I'm investigating the possibilities of doing a long-distance cruise
when I'm done with either my bachelor or masters degree. Since the last 2,5 years I have started sailing, varying from open boats, cabin
yachts to old dutch barges.
At the moment I still have to get a lot of coastal and offshore
experience. For now I've only sailed the dutch inland waters, lakes and the Wadden sea so I still have a lot more experience to gain. Also I'm trying to figure out the finances of my plan, sadly enough nothing is for free. So I'm trying to save some money
and in the meantime I try to predict how much such an endeavor will set me back.
So I've got lots to do and then I hope to leave in about 2 to 5 years time.
And that concludes this noble introduction
