I owned one for 20 years (hence the tag left over from those days). Great boat.
Now living my dream in the Med on someting a bit bigger, but would be happy to contribute on Noelex topics.

Med Sailing

Med Sailing sounds great especially all the fantastic ports (bottled ones too), people, villages...I hear the cost of marinas is a bit of a worry though?? Keen to get over there at some point in time to relive the Euro-Kiwi in me...

My son, who is a boat builder apprentice has just helped complete a 54 footer for a Frenchman (J-P Dick). That boat will be finding it's way over there soon - based on an Open 60 with greater configurability & cruising attributes (hydraulic systems, electric winches (one appears to do the lot which is welcome change from the old days); water ballast to allow the canting keel to be deployed for less draught in port; still a bit of a racing machine - resin infused carbon / Divinycell

Thanks for your post and keen to learn what you have been up to over there

Grant

Lots of room for a Kiwi here. There are plenty of great anchorages in the Eastern Med so no need for marinas.
Cheers John

Smile Thanks John

Sounds terrific John...My wife Charmaine keeps threatening to drag me across there kicking and screaming...I've been but she hasn't.

I particularly like the idea of the Eastern Med so long as it doesn't mean Beirut...Twas a lovely place prior to the war ...The fact that there's only 0.1m of tide in the Med is also very attractive, as are the temperatures and short distances to find shelter.

I've only sailed between Italy & Tunisia as part of my work (unfortunately). Sheltered around the back of Pantalleria for several days too.

Where are you from originally John??

I'll try to keep in touch...You never know we could end up meeting each other in the middle of the pond!! Snapper biting here at the moment and it's distracting me from work!

Cheers

Grant

Originally from Melbourne.
I have spent the last 3 years sailing in Italy, Greece and Croatia.
Not much fishing here though. I have spent many a great day fly fishing the south island of NZ, but so far my tally is med is zero fish.

Cool There are a few fish there

I spent time in the Straits between Tunisia & Sicily. There were big holes of 640m depth and in there were these 2 or 3 grand daddy Groper (must have been 80kg or more). Would be a pity to go for those they have been there for years....No wonder there are no fish there with the bad practices that have existed for years.

We had Kingfish the other night after a good fish at Kuaotunu up the Coromandel

Cheers

Grant
