Looking for experience sailing before buying a sailing boat
Hi - My partner Mark has completed RYA courses: - competent crew 5 day practical ; - day skipper 5 day practical ; - coastal skipper 5 day practical ; and is in process of completing many others. He is planning to buy a Catamaran. I am a complete novice. We are looking for experience sailing. Mark is ready to do anything (including big crossings) and as a novice, I would just be there for times close to coasts. We are both happy to help sailing (especially Mark), cooking, cleaning and contribute to expenses. We are both Australian ex finance professionals. Mark (61) has been retired for a few years and I (51) still work has a freelance translator (I am French-Australian).
