Yorksailor is on a distinguished road

I am planning to take a one week medical course and go into solo you want to be my first patient?

We have been cruising full time in the Caribbean for 3 years and we meet quite a few people who went off half-cocked like you. They finish up struggling with inadequate skills and poorly equipped boats as they run out of money.

While many do go cruising with almost no experience they are the ones that get into the most trouble and put other people at risk...

I have a friend who spent 2 yrs fitting out a boat for cruising only to loose it in hurricane Wilma. He was in a hurricane hole on 3 anchors but the boat next to him on a single anchor dragged them both ashore.
