Greetings from Bris Vegas!

G'day,

I've just joined as a commercial member so want to introduce myself. I'm a Kiwi living in Brisbane, Australia and am very much enjoying the sailing over here. I have a Farr 6000 trailer sailer (NZ built) which I race in our local club races and cruise on with the family at other times.
I look forward to picking up plenty of useful tips and advice from the rest of you.

Cheers,
Neil.

Re: Greetings from Bris Vegas!

I saw the title to this thread and had to look.

Being a yank was not familiar at all with calling Brisbane Bris Vegas so I had this mental image of a certain ceremony being performed on a Jewish baby boy in Las Vegas.

Welcome to the forum. Always fun to see more Kiwis and Aussies on board. Hope to make it to that part of the world someday for a visit.
