G'day from India

I'm from Sydney but currently live in a dusty inland Indian city. I've been sailing since I was a kid and have always wanted to own a sail boat. I'm finally planning to make that happen in about a years time. So getting started here early!

I get lost on this forum quite often, reading all the good stuff here. So figured it's time I join and get involved every now and then.

Looking forward to learning a lot and swapping some stories.

Cheers

I worked on and off in India for several years, mainly Delhi and Hyderabad....... spent time in Pakistan too.
Lovely place.. like stepping back 2000 years in some areas.
