And I was an experienced off shore sailor 20 years ago, but being landlocked for 20 years makes you rusty and changing from mono's to a tri meant some new things to learn, so I took the cautious approach that I would advise others to take.

My plans are to start with this boat, get my skills back up then upgrade to a bigger boat that I can do some longer coastal hopping and spend a few weeks aboard at a time with the family, then maybe further down the track upgrade again to a comfortable live aboard.

Do as I do not as I say... oh hang on...... Never mind
