I want to go sailing, So What...

I have been sailing since I am 6yo.
Then I started sailing cruises at the age of 23.
Since then I have done more than 50 cruises on boats from 22' to 55', monohull and catamaran and trimaran.
I have sailed on the French coasts in Normandy, Brittany, La Rochelle, South of France in the Mediterranean, Corsica. I have also sailed in Turkey, in the Carribean from the south of the Grenadines to the Bristish Virgin Islands and in French Polynesia.
Since the first one I have been the skipper on board - Captain Gilles !

I have a project, So What...: to go sailing around the world or somehere else for retirement.
