Hi all, My husband and I are about to buy a yacht which will become our new home and take us back to Australia over the course of a year starting in April. We're looking at a 1986 Jeanneau 41- has anyone got any experience of the 80s Jeanneaus?
We have got lots of books, and are doing sailing courses all over the place, and plan to be well prepared- this web site is great for tips and explanations, and no doubt, I'll be posting questions here and there.
We are going to leave in April 2006, spending 6 months through the Med, then joining the 2006 ARC over to the Caribbean. After a few months there, we'll then head thru the Panama and then the Pacific to Australia. VERY excited, VERY scared, and VERY confident that we have made the right decision. The London bombings shook us up, and galvanised us into action to live our lives with the most control we could. Together with the weather and our boat, we will be the masters of our own destiny!
Nice to meet you all and I look forward to reading more and being part of this new community.
