Two Old Farmers Go to Sea

What began as the casual thought, that buying a yacht would be a good way to begin our retirement, turned into a six-year odyssey for a couple that had spent their entire life inland.

The learning curve was extreme, as were the places we visited, the people we met and the adventures we had.

We learnt to suffer the vagaries of weather and electronic equipment and all the other problems one encounters in long distance sailing.

However, we did arrive back safely to Australia and  loved almost every minute of it, and hopefully anyone contemplating such an adventure will find this an encouraging story and give it a go.
