Hello all

Postby Bartz » Thu Aug 31, 2017 1:38 pm

After too much time browsing Boatsales and wondering what boat is right for me, the stars aligned and I was all set to buy a boat but was popped at the post by Don. As luck would have it it wasn't the right boat for me but it did put me in contact with Don and with his help and a 30 odd hour trip I am now the proud owner of Midnight, a lovely Mk2 Careel 18.
I have a hotchpotch sailing history, sailed on my father's cruising yacht as a kid, then sailboard then the odd cat but this is my first decent boat that I will be skippering so have a lot to learn. I am hoping my wife loves it too and we have a 1yo boy who will hopefully grow up with sailing in his veins.
To this end, any advice specific to safely bringing a baby on board would be much appreciated.
I'm based in Port Stephens so if anyone around here or Lac Mac wants to go for a sail let me know
Cheers
Steven
