Julie and I have kicked around various sailing ideas over the last few years. We even considered doing a round the world. However, the thought of crossing large oceans when we had only cruised in the Caribbean and Greek islands, seemed a bit like running before we could walk.
Julie did a bit of digging on the internet to try and get some tips from people who had already done this sort of thing. She came across a blog call “sailingbritican.com”, see links. This was the final push that convinced us to go for it. Thanks Britican.
When I retired at the end of June 2016, we thought wow, if we borrowed some money from our pensions lumps sums, we could really buy a boat and go sailing. So, with that in mind we are planning to sail around the Mediterranean for a year.
The plan is to let our house out for a year to help with the Taverna bills. Buy a boat, ideally already in the Med. Be ready to start sailing by last April 2017.
