Hello everyone!

Just joined with high expectations. RYA coastal skipper and in and out of the sea (with small craft) since I was a kid, but into sailing only for a few years... have circumnavigated a few Greek islands, like Kos and Kalymnos, but also Crete on my pride and joy, a 3,40m Zodiac with a 10hp Mercury. Now planning to abandon my present life (style) and cruise the world on my own or with partner, provided I find the right one (boat I mean...).

Meanwhile, planning a sailing holiday this summer for about three weeks. Would welcome any tips, suggestions?

Welcome.. what's your location? If you follow the "where is this place" thread you'll see the endless possibilities for beautiful cruising grounds.

Apologies for the X...

My deepest and sincere apologies for the X...

My location is Vienna, but as it is not really much fun sailing on the Danube river (can take you to the Black Sea though...), I was thinking mainly of Greece (my home country). The problem is that no charter company that I have contacted will charter even a 26' to one person, despite my RYA qualification...
