Golf? - pah! Spoils a good walk!
Import business - something to consider then ;-)
Thanks for the info - seems sailing is for the elite in Australia but in the UK with a bit of dedication working class people can and do go sailing. There are a lot of affordable yachts - a nice 1980 Westerly 26' can be bought for around GBP10,000, a 1980 UFO27 for a similar price or less with pontoon berths available for less than GBP200 a month. So entry into the sport might just require buying a cheaper car and drinking a bit less and you are covered.
Are there any restrictions in who can sail in Australia? Is it compulsory to have a certificate to skipper a yacht?
