Help! Where to start???

Before cruising the world I''d suggest that you bareboat charter to get some off shore experience and the feel of a larger boat. Sailing a 22 footer on a small inland lake doesn''t nearly cut it for ''round the world cruising. Visit the Cruising forum herein. Read some books on cruising. Not the best way to test a new marriage! Get some local cruising experience in first to work through the relationship dynamics of living on top of each other day in and day out with no more than deckspace to separate you. If you survive that then maybe the next step is the world! Check out http://www.mnsi.net/~main/publicy.htm for a woman''s view on global cruising.
