Hi all,

Seeing Im posting questions elsewhere I should do the polite thing and introduce myself.

Ive been sailing sporadically for quite some time - dinghies and small keelboats mainly, but some (albeit limited) larger yacht experience.

My better half and I are now getting serious with our sailing, and are undertaking the RYA Yachtmaster course. I highly recommend this to anyone considering taking up sailing - fantastic course, challenging but highly enjoyable and very comprehensive. Worth every cent. The great bit is you can do the theory components from home and the practical components in different exotic locations around the world, often at a lower cost than chartering the same vessel for the same length of time. Plus you meet some great people.

Were looking at buying a yacht - no rush, we're taking our time until we find the right one at the right price. Something 40"+, roomy with nice lines. One possibility is buying in the US or Europe and sailing it back here if we can find an experienced skipper - even with an RYA certificate Id still want our first trans Pacific/trans Indian run to have a seasoned salt on board. Ill make use of the crewfinder board if I find our dreamboat.

Thanks for everyone responses to my other queries to date as well.....very helpful folk, i really appreciate the fact people take the time to provide such thoughtful, informative answers.

Fair Winds!
