Hello guys, First time chit chat poster here. I was wondering if there were some sailors/skippers on my favorite forum. In december, I will make my first great journey across the ocean, from the canarias to Barbados apparently. It will be only me and my father, 3 weeks with daddy on the ocean...LOL I am moderately afraid of it. The main problem is that I am not that much of a great sailor. I have been sailing since I am ten in the meditteranean sea( and a bit of Brittain too ), but I have never really "skipped" a big boat alone, only small hobbycats or 4.70... I know how to adjust sails, be on watch and react though...The other problem is that my father is old( 65 ) and get tired easily... He is a good sailor and spend 6 months out of twelve on the boat. His boat is 14 meters( Jeanneau Sun Kiss from the 80's ), and quite reliable. We will have internet and new navigation tools for this journey. Who sails here? Have you got some advice, stories... for me? I have already gathered information on the internet about things to keep in mind, things not to forget before going... Thanks a lot, guys.
