Second Wind is a tried and tried Blue Water Sailboat. Designed and made in the Chesapeake Bay in the United States. I gave her a huge refit last year in Florida USA in preparation for the Golden Globe Race. A nonstop solo around the world race starting in France. Long story short I had crevice corrosion in bowsprit and broke the bowsprit in the middle of Indian ocean after rounding cape good hope. Where I then sailed jury rig to here in Fremantle. Upon fixing the bowsprit I have decided to put my lovely home for sale here. I am a completely honest and forward person so feel free to ask any questions etc
