We're Katie and Jim Thomsen, from California. We lived in Antwerp, Belgium from 2000 - 2005. In 2006 we purchased a new Hallberg-Rassy 40 and took delivery in the Netherlands. During 2006 we explored the Netherlands. This year we left the Netherlands and followed the coasts of Belgium and France, crossed the Bay of Biscay and explored some of the wonderful Spanish Rias, then followed the coast of Portugal and into the Med. We are spending the winter in Almerimar, Spain - a nice marina with a good size live aboard community.
In 2008 we will continue east....slowly.
Thank you for making the Cruiser Log an excellent resource.
