Hi, I have been sailing for about 5 years now and have a Dufour 36 Classic. We have sailed the south and west coasts of the uk as well as the Channel Islands and west coast of France. The last 3 Christmas periods we have chartered yachts in the Canary Islands and have sailed all the islands there. Our plan is to sail around the world in 2022 if all goes well in an appropriate vessel.
