G'day from Down Under :)

Howdy all,

Awesome site with tonnes of info,well done all

Been lurking for a couple of weeks just trying to get through it all,so i thought it best if i introduce myself

I've done a little (500ish miles) coastal cruising here in sunny Qld and am in the process of moving onboard to do a whole alot more but knowing how awesome a lifestyle it is an all the wonderful people i met on my last cruise, i have a feeling that one day i'll be looking to head offshore so sites such as this where i can learn from people who have been 'out there' are a godsend

Looking forward to hearing and learning from all the old salts and newbies on here

cheers and fair winds sreakyboy

G'day mate,

Have been to your country. Very beautiful out there - we sailed Cairns to Darwin, then Ashmore, Christmas, Keeling - most beautiful places in the world and very nice people.

Cheers,
b.
