I have been a sailor for 60 years. I have sailed most of my many miles in the south pacific and se asia. I have done many of those miles ( about 40,000 j single handed. But age is doing its thing and i am just not so confident any more. Although in the last year i have bought two boats up the coast from nsw to airlie beach on my own.One, my last yacht a jeanneau 36 and then my present boat an Integrity 350. With a much morepowerful engine than she needs she is, none the less, a great little ship. In my day i have been a salvor and insurance assessor,marina manager, yacht broker, Ocean racer and long distance voyaging yachtie.
