After avidly perusing the forum for several months (and feeling somewhat guilty at doing it without being registered- like a pique-assiette crashing a party), I finally decided to join you all. I'm very happy to be part of the community, and hope to be able to contribute, if only for a fraction of what I've already taken out of the site.
Should your sailing ever bring you in these parts
(moored at Jounieh in Lebanon), do not hesitate to holler: there is a small, but tight knit and passionate community of sailors here, always interested to meet fellow sailors from far, or not so far, away places.
Good winds and friendly seas to all...
