Greetings from Sussex

Hi All,
I am based on the south coast of England and currently searching for a 25 ft-ish day sailer to use from Brighton Marina. My crew is far more interested in warmer waters and after several years of flotillas in Greece and Turkey we have booked a six week bareboat from Lefkas in the Greek Ionian with a view to sailing around the Peloponnese in May-June this year. No doubt my passage planning will lead to plenty of questions in the appropriate parts of the forum.
All the best for sunny sailing - Ian Lisseter

Like the name

I used to live in Hove....Actually

many moons ago - just round the corner from the Seagulls ground - "Poets Corner' it was very optimistically called.
