Hello everyone, very new here, had a bit of a peruse and I will probably stay a lurker. We are in the process of looking for a cruising boat
. Currently sailing with Twofold Bay Yacht Club near the beautiful port of Eden as crew on an Adams
Someone told us to get a dingy to learn, they said if you can sail a dingy you can sail anything. While it may have some aspects of truth it really wasn't great advice
, bored with the dingy in a couple of months and wanting a more comfortable boat
after day 1. We are tall and there is nothing fun about that kind of boat unless you are very short, small or young. It also taught us very little about cruising boats or cruising on the ocean.
We recently chartered a boat in the Whitsundays and now we really need to buy! I wanted to sail the Med, Great Barrier Reef
without all the charter
restrictions and the Caribbean
mostly but every time I research
I find other places I will need to sail. Mono hull
for sure, but mainly due to budget
Thanks for all the info!
