G'day from London, soon sailing back to Oz

Hi All,
Just wanted to say hi from cold and miserable London...the good news is that I got my hands on a very solid 24ft twin keeler that I will sail back to Oz around March so look out for us in the big drink

If you think London is cold, you should try Norway!

Where is your final destination?

Sydney Australia (where I come from)....in fact 100nm north from Sydney would be ideal ...I know London is not so bad compared to northern Europe but the problem here is the instability...4 seasons in one day...anyhow...I think the depression finally got to me hence need to run away and return to where I belong...

Lived in French's Forest for a couple of years myself. If you wanted 4 seasons in one day, you didnt need to go all that way, could have just popped down to Melbourne.

Aloha TD,
Welcome aboard! Good to have on the forum. What kind of boat do you have? Westerly? Just curious.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Samuel Johnson stated that "those who are tired of London are tired of living" but he was an Englishman so what does he know. I take it you have bought a "heavenly twin" cat. There was a female compatriat of your did the same. I believe she is now in the Eastern Med. Anyway good luck with your adventure and keep us updated. Finally isn't Feb a little early in the season?

Regards

Alan
