This is 'meet and greet', so greetings! My wife and I are new sailors
. I'm 52 and she is quite-a-bit-less. For some time, we've been retired in the Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa
(I'm originally British and she is South African), but now we wish to start a new adventure.
We've already been visiting this forum for a while now, particularly to gauge opinion on the monohull/catamaran question. We've yet to decide.
We want to circumnavigate, taking our time, and our plan at the moment is Cape Town-St Helena-Ascension-Caribbean-Panama-Galapagos-etc. While opinion seems to favour cats, we still have questions regarding safety
, especially in rough seas and the potential of capsizing. Hopefully, we'll get more answers as we read some of the excellent discussions in this forum, by people who've done it all.
Thanks again to a great site!
