Everything comes together

I have dreamed of cruising South for nearly 20 years and have had concrete plans to do so since 2000. Only now have cirmcumstances converged to make this a reality:
  1. I have just completed a 2 years Masters degree and am officially unemployed as of July 1
  2. I have met a lovely woman who is a keen adventurer, does not get seasick often, and grew up without indoor plumbing (all valuable cruising traits!)
  3. I have recently sold a house and have put away enough to do some extended cruising
  4. I have lived on a boat for more than a year and accumulated a modest amount of cruising experience over the last 10 years - enough to risk trying a longer passage.

I would be crazy to turn away from this opportunity...
