The people you meet

Full time cruising on a small boat is a wonderful pastime and it’s made particularly appealing by the people you meet.

You might think there’d be a single demographic binding cruising folk but you’d be wrong. The motivation to go cruising might be common – freedom, adventure, nude deck-dancing – but the people that actually set off are a widely disparate group.

Take age, for example – we met couples who didn’t seem old enough to be legally married and we met world girdling octogenarians.

How about background? – we met musicians, a famous medical researcher, we anchored alongside the world’s most trusted news-anchor and we communed with a veritable flotilla of ordinary, somewhat adventurous, people of every nationality, colour and creed.

The point is – you can’t pigeon-hole cruising folk. Get out there, you’ll fit right in!
