We are in our 60’s and are about to go sailing in our sailing yacht “Witte Kreeft”, which is translated from dutch to mean ( White Lobster). It is a westerly oceanquest 35 AC. Is about 10 metres long and sleeps 6 theoreticaly, but 4 is cosy and 2 is about right.

We will give more technical details later but suffice to say it has cost £1000’s to kit it out for ocean sailing! We will be having a short time on the boat this month to make sure it all works and then we will leave Monnickendam in Holland, on or about the second week in April. We have no real destination in mind except we intend to head south.
