Hi, I'm Stefan from Petrovac - Montenegro. After finishing nautical high school in 1995, I sailed on merchant ships (bulk, containers and tankers) as 3rd and 2nd mate for 10 years. In 2005 I decided to stop sailing and get married. I am still happily married and have 2 kids (16 and 10 years old). Since 2005 I have been spending every summer on the Montenegrin coast with my boat, my friends speedboat and few 42-45 ft rented sailing yachts which I sailed alone with my family. I am planning to buy a sailing yacht in the next few years, and as children get bigger, I plan to spend more time on the sea. The BIG plan is to sail world circumnavigation from my home town in my own sailing yacht. Start is planned for 2032 (i will have 55 years at that time), and both of my kids will be older than 18 y. In the meantime I am looking for nice opportunities to sail in the Mediterranean and Atlantic with some good people, to enjoy the bright stars in the clear sky, to have some good winds in my sails and some nice waves under the keel and to gain more sea experience.
