This is very much I have in mind for sailing to UK/Europe. I may opt for sailing in the inland water by way of Bordeaux. Last year, I purchased two books talking about how to transit inland water and canals in Europe, doable and fascinating. Added bonus is that my wife is likely to join me.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
