Greetings from the very South: Buenos Aires

Hi there! I've just found this forum and I really enjoyed it so I registered myself.
I've got no boat yet but I'm looking for a wooden boat (sloop and easy to single sailing, no more than a 30 foot boat, most likely less than that). My sailing experience is still very short but I hope I'll learn more once I get my boat.

best wishes from Buenos Aires, and please forgive me about my bad English

Thanks JohnR!
Well, here people sail mainly the big river (Río de la Plata), and some sailors go to the ocean from time to time. Actually some of them have crossed the Atlantic in small sailboats (19/20 ft.) and of course the great Vito Dumas circumnavigated the globe in the thirties, all alone.

Your English is better than many folks who live here, sad to say. But a wooden boat is either a labor of love or a never ending nightmare. Make sure you understand the maintenance issues and costs, and have it carefully surveyed by someone who knows wooden boats, before you take one into your life!
