"Journos Luxury Yacht"=a hole in the water for time, money,affection,blood,sweat n tears
Welcome to the madhouse.
No need to translate on my account - I work for a US business and spend my life having to deal with spelling, grammer and pronunciation that is cringeworthy!
ps - Best story of this week ( so far, and its only Tuesday ). US colleague to one of us in the UK office. "Could you please let me know the times and fares for the trains from Edinburgh to Dublin?"
Hee hee.... A US colleague asked me a few weeks back if he'd need his passport to visit Edinburgh after a meeting in London.
I told him.... "not yet"
"I understand you can leave the boat in EU for 18 months but to reset my Schengen clock I would have to commute back and forth across the Atlantic; not fun or cheap. Grumble, grumble."
I skippered a US registered 45'er up and down the Channel etc. for the last couple of years and we visited Guernsey a couple of times (the Channel Is not being part of the EU) to 'reset the Schengen clock'. Seemed to work quite well. Not a problem.
You might brush up on your tidal theory before going to the CIs - where they are quite large ! - your compatriot explained to me that in the US tides only went up and down, never along or across !!!
He was soon disabused of this going down the Russell.......
I'll just do what all the visiting boaters do over here. Pick someone in a local boat and follow them around.
