Hi, just a suggestion if you want to sail in the Med - come to Aktio/Preveza, Greece to look for a boat - there are several boat yards in this area with hundreds of boats for sale. Most people in the boat business speak English and prices are very low. By the way, I used to live in Victoria for 20 years. And no, I am not a yacht broker, I publish a magazine in the Ionian. Starting in April there are charters to Corfu and in May to Aktio/Preveza from London. Good luck.
