Talking Hello

Hi,
I'm new to this forum and would like to say that I look forward to reading and taking part in the discussions.

I live in Tintern in Wales and keep my Westerly 33, Dunkers of Tintern in West Wales on the River Cleddau at a place called Lawrenny, above Milford Haven. I have just bought the boat having previously had an Elizabethan 29 which I bought in Antigua and lived on for a couple of years in the southern Caribbean. I originally singlehanded my Achilles 24, Dunkers, over on the first ARC in 1986. Unfortunately I lost her on a reef off Los Roches, Venezula (pre- GPS days).

My wife and I are hoping to go voyaging again in about three years to get away from the rat race and begin to live proper lives again.

Cheers
David

welcome to the forum. There is a very wide spread of knowledge and also domicile on here (hence some strange spelling occasionally! )

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you have a wealth of experience to add to the forum.

Love the name of your boat, but the first one did dunk you didn't she?
