Newbie in the Med
Hi everybody

We are a retired couple planing to sail the Med. and more.

In May 2011 we purchased a Moody36 (30 years young) and our intention is to sail the Med during the 2012 summer season and after that if we can we would like spend winter where it is nice and worm.

Hi, here are you? And when you plan to start that?

Do you want some help regarding nice places or you have it all figured out?

No, we don't have anything planed out yet and yes we are open to suggestions taking in consideration that we would like to spend the nights most of time in coves.

Last month we went to the Balearic Islands where we saw really nice coves.

For now we are thinking of going to Greece next summer, leaving in spring to come back at the of Aug or Sept, however we can easily change the plans.

Sounds great! Where will you sail from?

My plan is to sail the MED end to end before the Big Man cashes me in.
Currently I sail the Irish East coast and read and reread the sailing guide books, Rod Heikell seems the most knowledgable but theres loads of web blogs on line. I visited southern Spain in Febuarary, was realy pleasent.
Good luck and safe sailing
