I've just signed up and if you remember when you first did theres a note on every screen
telling you to post an intro message or your computer will blow up, the keel
will fall off, and the tax inspector with tap on your hull
Tap Tap Tap.
So I guess I better say Hi.
Can you guess by my humour (or lack of it, plus spelling) that I'm Australian?
As a German guy said who met me in a bar in Marmaris, Turkey
"teach me to sail". I asked him how he knew I could sail. He said all Australians can sail.
, that. Because it was an old German sea dog that taught me when I gave up harbour sailing and first went off shore when I was about 18.
My only problem is I don't have a boat. But this will change early next year.
On joining this group I hope that it is the happy place it appears. And why shouldn't it, for sailing is not like whacking lids on jam jars in a factory, its about us living close to, and with nature. As an old skipper
told me: You only ever know someone when you've sailed with them.
By the way, I saw another new member
post from Michigan, with a reply from Muskegan. Small world. I took a boat from Muskegan through the Great Lakes
to Nova Scottia. Thats a great cruise! Must get back there some time to see the ice sailing in winter and the fishing
in little huts on the lake with holes cut in the ice.
