A Day Skipper many years ago and love being on the water. The calendar is cleared to do The Arc 2021. Crew of x2 + skipper Portugal to Lanzarote many years ago ( '86) caught in a storm on a 28ft and didn't sail again for a couple of years. Then with late husband owned a Feeling 1090 based on the Hamble for a couple of years and sailed no further than the south coast. Children in and boat out in early 90's. Most recently as a family of 4 we chartered Beneteau Oceanis 45 in Greece 2014 ( Kos ) and Croatia 2015 (Kornati) Truthfully, husband was the water baby and the natural sailor and I was very good at berthing and crewing. Finally finding time and commitment to tick this one off the bucket list and keen to contribute both financially and task wise. Looking for single hull c50ft with some degree of comfort. Reasonable fitness. Not quite as strong as I'd like to be but always willing to try.
