Vincent's Sailing Adventure
My name is Vincent. Yes, my thirst for a sailing adventure began when I was young. A quick glance around this page will tell you that from an early age growing up in New Zealand, I had a strong affinity with boats. Any activity connected with boats, pulled me with an irresistible attraction that was not to be denied. Hence pictures either in, on or under all kinds of boats. Small sailing dinghies, clinker built dinghies, jet boats, motor launches and in recent years, more serious yachts, it was of no matter, I would be there.
Having lived in the UK for six years and sailing up and down the West Country of England, crossing the Atlantic for the first time as part of the ARC Rally, I decided that when it was time to come home to NZ, I would embark on my own sailing adventure. Almost everyone jumps onto a silver jet, crams into a tiny seat for twenty four hours and arrives home totally drained. So, why not buy a decent sized yacht and sail her home. This is what I did, and had the most fantastic few years doing it. You cannot imagine the feeling of freedom and power that this decision can bring to you. Likewise, the personal growth you experience is irreplaceable.
It is the knowledge and ‘know how’ gleaned from this powerful experience I bring to share with you in my ‘sailboat2adventure’ website and ‘101 Dollar Saving Tips for Sailors’. Along with my narrative ‘Sailing Adventure in Paradise’, I have put together a package that I know will be of great value to you. If you get as much fun and pleasure from it as I have whilst writing it and it inspires you to begin planning your sailing adventure of a lifetime, then I will know I have done my job.
