An Irishman Afloat(hopefully)

Hi All,

My name is Patrick and I'm addicted to wind

I am just starting to get into yacht sailing properly ..and have come here to hopefully pick the brains of the people that know.

I have windsurfed , kite-surfed , crewed tallships and recently helped sail a J92/s to a very reasonable result in the round the island race.

I am more than happy to hear all sides of opinion and view any/ all criticism as helpful.

And of course I realise I have a great deal to learn ..which I am looking forward to.
