    Me parecía. Estuve en RGYC en 1970 (!!). De allí a Rio. Luego en 1973, pero Nordeste no permitió subir a Floria. Ibamos a ir este año pero nos dijeron q hay fiebre amarilla. Nos fuimos a Tierra del Fuego.

    Glut Of Used Boats (30') For Sale

    Ahh....my half-baked plan is to form a "sindicate" with 2-3 friends I raise U$$ 25-30K, buy a reasonably good 32-34 ft boat and take a sabatical in the US. Only problem I still work, and my free time is January-February (summer here, winter in the US). Can foreigners buy/insure boats in the US? Also have to check how long a tourist visa is valid.

    Garcia Exploration 45

    I an intrigued by the Garcia Exploration 45 yacht https://www.garciayachts.com/en/garcia-yachts/design-for-blue-water-cruising/choosing-a-centreboard-yacht/ These are pure centerboarders (no lifting or shallow keel). How ia adequate AVS achieved? Are these yachts adequate for windward sailing?
