I am now trying to grow up and moved back to Belgium 4 months ago..
I was raised with a sailingboat on the lakes in the Netherlands. But my Dad was only good in giving orders not so much on teaching. So I have no idea what I am able to do and why I do things. But I would like to believe that I feel what needs to be done.. However I would like some knowledge to go with that feeling.
I do have my sealegs after living on a yacht for two years diving off the offshore reefs in the Red Sea.. And I am missing it soooo much.
So before settling back in the European lifestile I would like to make one last trip.
Preferably around the Med but am open for suggestions. Should be ready to leave the end of August.
Im very happy to have found this site..
And am looking forward to hearing from you guys..
I suggest that you post an ad on the crewfinder section of the Cruiserlog (if you haven't done so already). Let us know what happens with your "new" sailing life
I have a friend who had a similar experience to you--much sailing and much getting ordered about by Dad as a child--but she doesn't remember how to do much of anything! She's learning anew.
Good luck in your travels
