Sailing friend/Partner

Hi, I am hopping to find a like minded female person that would like to sail with me. My wife and I had plans of sailing around the world again, But Motor Neurons Disease took her and those plans away.
I still want to do this adventure but not alone.

I am 60+ and have extensive sailing history.
At this stage I am Living in New Zealand.

So if this kind of adventure is for you drop me a line and we will move from there. Ivan

I posted this before and was given a 24 hour box penalty for spamming. Not sure why, but it's a legit single sailors' site. LoveSail


Rock Steady
