Hi all. Just to say hello and I look forward to virtually meeting you all.
Clearly Iíve registered with an agenda lol. I want you to tell me how stupid my dream is.
My background is Iíve had numerous boats over the past 30 years but always speedboat types (one rib
for a diving
fad) but I fully acknowledge these are not Ďproperí boats.
Iíve always wanted a sailing yacht. But never been brave enough to buy one (or patient enough to learn).
So onto my life dream. Iíve always wanted to sail from the UK to and around the Med and Iím at a stage of my life where if I donít plan things, itís never going to be anything other than a dream. I could be 3 or longer years away from having the opportunity (money/time) to be able to do this.
Some questions (in no particular order):
Do I learn on a small sailing yacht and gradually get bigger or go fo something large to start with (if so what size).
Assuming Iíve learnt/practiced sufficiently. How achievable is it to go this kind of distance (just me and the wife)
Iím not made of money
lol. How much will I need to spend on a boat
to do this (roughly) and how much does it cost to moor (roughly).
These are probably numpty questions so I apologise, but I need to get myself in or out of this lifeís ambition!
Thanks all for taking the time.
