My name is Rafal Kowalski (probably easier to pronounce as the Dude). I am Polish and Swiss and live in Ticino, Switzerland. There is no sea here as you know
but a lot of lovely lakes
I've been sailing since my early youth, first racing Cadet and Finn dinghy in my polish homeland and then enjoying leisure sailing on charter boats on Med. Since 2009 I am the proud owner of a lovely little English boat Vagabond (Contessa 32 by Jeremy Rogers), which made so far from North Wales to Concarneau, Brittany with a stop in Lymington for some refurbishment work. Work, time and money permitting, I intent to sail her together with my friends to Fiumicino, Italy this summer.
