A dry run of the talk I will be giving at the winter lecture series of the Bonneville School of Sailing. Stories from 15 years of sailing in the Med
Comments on Maxwell Windlass, healthcare while sailing and other thoughts.
Also I’ve been asked to speak at a winter sailing series of lectures at Bonneville School of Sailing and I look forward to that later this winter. If you’d like me to speak in front of your group drop me a note, if it’s possible I will try to do it.
I met Tony Cross in the summer of 2013 at the marina in Nikolas when I was sailing in Crete he had posted on the bulletin board in the Marina the availablility of this free cruising guide.
Of course I’m always interested in getting as much information on the area I’m sailing as possible, Tony was glad to provide this PDF file to me for free and he gave me permission to post on this website his goal is to get as much information out into the sailing community as possible.
Thanks Tony we appreciate it!

It’s been a while since I’ve put out an episode and I thought I’d at least try to bring you up to date. The summer sale of 2013 was challenging from both a weather and technical point of view. In this podcast I talk about getting on the boat in Turkey, and preparing the boat for launching including the problems we had in building a new bowsprit and then can. We make the best of our a shore time by doing some traveling to some various Greek ruins located in Turkey. Finally we launched the boat and I talked about the sale from boat drum Turkey and ending up in casos Greece.
I decided to start doing a couple more podcasts as time allows because I’ve gotten some fan mail strange as this may sound! Also I’ve been asked to speak at a winter sailing series of lectures and I look forward to that later this winter. If you’d like me to speak in front of your group drop me a note, if it’s possible I will try to do it.
Finally I am able to talk to an expert on the procedure and rules for VAT and other taxes and issues in the EU. If listeners write me questions (franz at medsailor dott comm ) that Alex can answer I will try and do a follow-up interview with Alex in the future.
