Re: Brexit

It really is a perception she just feels that it's a long way away. Then I guess there is the cost out the flights. From the med we will probably go back to the U.K. Quite frequently and that will get expensive if we are traveling to and from the other side of the pond.
There is also our house in Cyprus which we have struggled to keep up the mortgage payments on for so long that we want to get some use from. It's all a balance and I can see where she is coming from.
The way I see it is a few months sailing then either home to the UK for a while or off to Cyprus then back to the boat again.
We rent our house in Cyprus for the summer months so hopefully that will help to fund our travels.
We are by no means rich so we will have to fund this somehow.

Re: Brexit

I totally understand having to make the crew happy, perception and all. A house in Cyprus is not a bad consolation prize.

All the best with your plans. If you see a crack in the door, planned flights to/from the major Caribbean airports can be cheap. High volume tourist location. If you have to get home to mum, in an emergency, that gets pricey. I suppose it could from Greece too, but I'm not familiar.

Cheers

Re: Brexit

Thanks for the good wishes.
I suppose the Brexit question will be answered for sure eventually.
In the meantime I hope we can get some sailing in. Our timescale is back to the Uk Early November, buy boat fix the house up. We have been renting it out, Sell it, take off so hopefully by this time next year we will be getting close.
Hope to be in the med by the springtime. Fingers crossed. Depends how quickly we can sell the house I suppose.

Re: Brexit

@MarkofSeaLife got it right at the top of the thread. The relationship between the UK and EU will be the result of much diplomatic negotiation, discussion which have not even begun. Once Article 50 is exercised decisions by other countries within the EU, of which there are already rumbles, could change the game entirely.

For cruisers Schengen does make a difference.

Brexit will have a greater impact on Americans and others who are not UK or EU citizens. The Azores and Canary Islands will be in the EU but the UK will not. That means more C&I (not a huge burden) and likely more care about import and VAT.

As long as my Tessco card is still valid everything else can be worked out. *grin*
