So, Gale, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far?.

Guest Interview Tony Fleming of Fleming Motor Yachts and his boat, Venture.

So, Tony, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? I did some quite extensive cruising mainly in Norway and other parts of Scandinavia - in an early Fleming 55 owned by the person who is now our agent in Australia. But I presume you are more interested in the cruising I have done in my own boats. I had a GB42 in Singapore which I took to the Tioman Islands in the South China Sea off the east coast of Malaysia. That boat is under new ownership and no...
