Iíve been lurking around the forum for a few weeks and itís time to jump in. Iíve sailed off and on my entire life and always intended when I retire to buy a boat
and go cruising. As we know, men
make plans and God just laughs...
Anyway, I retired in 2015 and promptly had my first severe health
crisis that took 3 years to diagnose, treat, and recover. Now, at age 68, Iím good to go! Iím a former triathlete and was heading for the Kona world championships when I got ill, so Iím far from decrepit. However, I definitely hear the clock ticking. If I intend to do any world cruising I had better get at it!
This forum looks like a great place for information and technical support. Iím actually ďpracticingĒ on my brotherís 35ft. Island Packet
this summer while I hunt for a boat
that better fits what I would like to sail on. My intermediate goal (sometime in 2020) is sailing across the Atlantic and then knock around European ports
for a while.
