Building of a DREAM!!!

Welcome to our sailing blog.  Debbie and I will be setting out on our sailing adventure in March of 2012.  As we speak our new Antares 44i catamaran "Bella Luna" is being built in the factory in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  In October I travelled to the factory for a visit and view first hand the progress of our boat.  So far it looks like we have hulls and a deck!  These photos will probably not excite you, but we are ex static. Things are coming along very well.

It doesn't look like much right now but she is going to be "Bella".   We will be moving to Argentina at the end of February.  This will give us time to get to know her for a few months on the River Plata and surrounding area before we begin our way north up the coast of Brazil.

In the coming months we will be doing the final preparations, another sailing course, packing, visiting, etc, etc etc.  It will be a busy few months.

We will have more updates and photos as the building progresses.
