    Calculating VAT

    That I don't know. I was in Horta at the time and asking around for someone who was planning a trip from Canada to the Med.

    Calculating VAT

    I looked into this quite a few years ago and things may have changed since. You can (or maybe must) pay the VAT where you first clear customs in the EU. The Azores has a very favorable VAT rate compared to the rest of Europe. If you stopped in Horta on the way across the Atlantic, you could pay the tax there, save quite a bit of money, and see some really cool islands.
  3. I have owned the fixed keel version (366) for a long time. Great boat. I always assumed from the work I have done on the boat that the deck was cored with marine plywood. Thank punter for the tip on the facebook group. Not many members there but maybe some good info once my they let me in.

    Sailing to Halifax

    When you have your dates finalized, let me know. We live here in town and would be happy to show you around a bit. Couple of mentions about Armdale and RNSYS. If you need access to a full service club, Dartmouth Yacht Club is 40 minutes further up the harbour. It's the only place in town with a travel lift if you need to get hauled for any reason and in the next week or so, the new clubhouse will open.

    Astronomy Anarchy

    Was a bit offshore Saturday night on an overnight sail. Great show before the moon rose around midnight.
