Hello Everybody !

I've lived all my life by the sea and after years of longing I've just bought my first sailboat!
Despite my love for boats, I'm totally new to sailing and since I don't know anyone who can give me some advice, I hope to get help from forum members! I know that I'm probably going to ask a lot of silly questions but I'm ready to learn as much as I can from your experience!

Re: Hello Everybody!

Thank you all for your hail!
I purchased a second-hand Newbridge Corribee MKIII...and I would like to learn how to sail properly! It would be a pity if I couldn't maximize the boat's potential!

A Splendid choice.... bilge keel or fin...??
not that there's that much difference in performance...
capable of some serious long distance cruising if you don't mind the small living space...
This is mine... soon to be another colour...

Bilge keel!
At the moment the small living space is not a problem because I don't think I'm going to sail for long distances...at least unless I become a seasoned sailor!
Nice boat...what new colour have you chosen?
