Punctuation is not clear, but I think I would be accused of being a Kiwi -pretty flattering company to keep for a sailor. I don't know anyone who pays for crew air fares too and from, although I was asked for this by a TransPac racer, a legend inhis own mind, who used to frequent SN.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
