Hello from Norway

Hello,
Im a 22 year old man from Norway, grown up by the sea, and always wanted to be on the sea. So Ive signed up for a sailing course over 4 weeks this summer.

So if anyone got a crew spot avaible for a beginner, and will be willing to teach me how to sail, and other basics just send me a PM, I can come to any corners of the world. Im also willing to pay for a opportunity like this.

Re: Hello from Norway

Hi,

Welcome. There are some Nordic guys around, maybe you can get lucky, but I guess that will happen after everybody know you better. Have fun with your course and don't be a stranger.

regards

Paulo

Re: Hello from Norway

Thanks alot for a warm welcome! I didnt know that stuff about the post count to retrieve private messages, sorry.

Yeah, I am looking forward to that sail course. I will take some pictures and share with you guys.

I am currently looking for a robust, kinda cheap sailboat now,and it has to be easy to sail, not to big, and not too small. So if anyone have some tips on great beginner boats, that can take a beating and can handle some short trips I would really appriciate it.

Again, thanks alot for your feedback

I dont know size, but I guess 26 feet or something. Budget 40.000$ , dont want to spend too much in my first boat, and Im not afraid to do some work on the boat. Do you know if it is any countries that is cheaper to get sailboats in? In Norway the boats are rather expensive.

Thanks alot, I am from the western part of Norway, living on an island called AverÝy. Maybe you know Atlantic road? I live 300 meter from that road, so it's a really great place for boat life, diving and trips. Norway isnt the warmest country, but hey, we're vikings
