Have been looking at this site a couple of times (enjoyed the story of Tosser...) and thought its time to introduce myself.
My name is Toby, my companion/galley-slave is Verena. Our yacht is a Tosca39 (sloop). We're full time sailors for nearly 6 years now, started in Cape Town South Africa
, sailed the Atlantic, then the Med up to Turkey
, then the Caribbean
, then back to Africa
via the Azores
, then Brazil
(we kind of love crossing the Atlantic!). We just returned from a long trip (nearly 1000 miles) up the rivers Parana and Paraguay, had a great time and went aground only a couple of times. We're soon off south along the Argentinan coast to Ushuaia and Cape Horn. Then the Pacific - its so big that we don't make plans...
