Greetings from Xanten, Germany
I am Michael from Xanten, Germany. Our small towns history dates back to the romans, what the tourists find rather interesting but is rather common to the locals.
The tidal waters of the north sea are my favorite sailing area as I have a 2-3 hours ride to the german, dutch or belgium coast. But due to female co-sailors I do the warmer Mediterranean Sea at least once a year as well.
Now and then I consider buying a ship myself, but as I like to explore new areas and the crew size varies I still prefer to hire in different places. On the chartered boats I am typically joined by 3-9 other sailors for an extended weekend or a full weeks trip. This year we have sailed to Vlieland, to Helgoland, round Menorca and the english channel in crosswise and lengthwise direction.
I go sailing as often as business and social obligations permit as time and tide wait for no one.
