Greetings from Southern New Zealand

Greetings all,
I have just joined this forum and am here to introduce myself

Name is "Geedee".... am 78yrs young...
I sail a Hartley "Queenslander" "Gandalf" out of the NZ southern port of Bluff and a member of the Green Point yacht Club.
Gandalf is a ferro cement yacht, built in 1970 and is in wonderful order.

My main cruising area is Stewart Island across the notorious Foveaux Strait, also have cruised several times to the Fiordland Sounds in the SW corner of the South Island of NZ, always waiting for the right conditions before setting off.
My sea going ranges from days in merchant marine, Commercial fishing, skippering charter boats,sailing dinghies, trailer boats , ocean sailing and "Gandalf"
I love boats of all shapes and sizes.

take care all and great sailing

regards,

Geedee

G'day Geedee, and welcome to CF. With your history and your difficult local cruising grounds, you should have lots of interesting stories to tell us... we enjoy even the true ones! So, we look forward to your posts...

Cheers,
