Ahoy from Slovenia

My name is Ales I am from Slovenia, Europe.
In 77, 78 i have spent a year in Decatur Ill, by the lake. It is where I have learned sailing basics on the Sunfish an later on the Laser, a bit of racing on Lightning and Tissel boats with my host family, the Johnsons. They introduced the sailing to mem thought me the basics and more and mede me fall in love with the wind and the boats...

I have a boat named "Q". It is a 47 footer, central cockpit, bermudan sloop built 1990 in Italy by Franchini yachts.
I spend up to 4 months per year cruising in Adriatic and Mediterranean sea.
Most of that time in Croatian archipelago.
We are just about finished with a new teak deck about 23 m2 of it. Q is longing for a new set of sails: furling genoa and furling main and maby furling asymetric spinaker...

Welcome to the Forum, Ales. I'm glad you joined us--I always enjoy the perspective our European members bring to the discussions. I'd love to see some photos of your boat, and I'm sure others would, as well.
