Hello from the Dude

My name is Rafal Kowalski (probably easier to pronounce as the Dude). I am Polish and Swiss and live in Ticino, Switzerland. There is no sea here as you know :mad: but a lot of lovely lakes :) I've been sailing since my early youth, first racing Cadet and Finn dinghy in my polish homeland and then enjoying leisure sailing on charter boats on Med. Since 2009 I am the proud owner of a lovely little English boat Vagabond (Contessa 32 by Jeremy Rogers), which made so far from North Wales to Concarneau, Brittany with a stop in Lymington for some refurbishment work. Work, time and money permitting, I intent to sail her together with my friends to Fiumicino, Italy this summer.

Welcome.. The Contessa 32 is a lovely, serious cruising boat. Sounds like some adventure in the making..
