Hello everyone

I'm another new person (sailing was never on my list of must dos but the OH loves it). After about 8 years on our 26 footer I started to enjoy. We now have a bigger boat and the intention to do some coastal cruising and I feel it an appropriate time to join this very informative and friendly forum.

Elizabeth

gidday Elizabeth,
welcome to this forum. I find it real helpful and there are some good people on it.
Horrible wet and windy day in Wellington today. Spent last night in the marina rocking in the wind and not getting much sleep.
Where do you do your cruising in Napier?

Been pretty wild again. Just dropped tonight out there. Weather gods must know the weekend is over.
I met a real keen yachtee Lady at Mana yesterday. She said she was going to have a look on this forum. Hi Paula if you are looking. Get started and ask some questions!

Hi Seafox

Believe me we've had the winds here too!

We have mostly just been sailing here in the bay although we did have a great trip to Mahia labour weekend with a group of 10 other boats. Great fun apart from the southerly on the return trip.
