Default Learning how to Sail

Hi everybody,

My fiance and I are looking to learn how to sail and get a feel for what's involved in living on a sailboat. So we thought if anyone was stopping in Brisbane, Australia and wanted to help us out by passing on their knowledge we would be happy to offer you our laundry facilities if you need them, shower/bath, accommodation if needed and some delicious meals in return. We'd also love to show you the sites and give advice on the area. What we're looking for are some lessons in sailing and tips and advice about living on a sailboat and we'd love to help out with some boat maintenance too to get a feel for what's involved. (Our long term dream is to sail from here to America and Europe).

If you're interested please send us a message or email! d.clinch@live.com.au

Thank you kindly!
Zoe and David

Nice post! With this attitude I'm sure you'll become cruisers. So few people living on land understand the value of a hot shower and laundry facilities to the traveler.

I wish you both all the best for your future sailing plans.
