Experience: 1300 ocean miles / 6000 coastal miles
Tony and I enjoy the cruising lifestyle and have sailed throughout our married life. We are family focused and took our 6 kids sailing during summer breaks while they were young. Now in retirement, we had prepared our Westsail 32 for longer adventures to explore the Caribbean islands, but hurricane Ian recently put an end to that plan. Our boat was totaled. We're looking for opportunities to continue to enjoy adventures out on the water and want to help others with their sailing adventures while we are "boatless". We're planning to get another boat at some time, but not this winter/spring.
