The name is Oskar. Found this excellent forum a couple of days ago and must say it's really interesting reading.
I've been costal sailing since I was little. Last September I Crewed the Atlantic from Halifax
, To Brest, France
. Really nice experience where i guess we had most of the problems you will experience at sea. Ended up well though.
For the moment, me and my friend (first mate) are save some money
to buy a boat
in the US this Jan. Boat budget
is 20 000$. The trip is planned to a roundabout in the Pacific ocean
during 2009. If we decide so during the trip we'll head
for a circumnavigate and hopefully en up in sweden
, home sweet home.
Right now we're kind of into the Islanders, specially the Islander 36 that we find is a really good boat for that money
. But, if someone have other boat suggestions that we must look into that's really welcoming.
I hope to find a lot of good reading here and hopefully some enthusiastic help from all of you
