Hello from aussie

Hi, I am a new member but confess to having searched for needed info and curiosity for sometime. now have the courage to post.
We (my husband and I) own a 9m catamaran which we try to get out on regularly but never for as long as we would really like. Day trips and long weekends mainly. We look forward to when we can do some extended coastal cruising here on the East Coast of Australia. We are fortunate to live on the central coast just north of sydney so have a good cruising area close to home with Sydney harbour (anchor beside the Opera house) to Port Stephens (beautiful Fame Cove) with the Hawkesbury River/Pittwater in between.
Look forward to learning more about boats and sailing from you all. Bye Jacqui

Welcome aboard,
I lived in Sydney two years and Perth two years, and loved it (Perth more than Sydney). Hopefully one day I will get back there.

Hello and welcome Jacqui and husband. We sailed Lake Macquarie whilst living in Sydney so know the area well. We just bought our second boat which is in NZ so we leave to go and liveaboard in exactly 29 days (not counting). Hope to see you on the high seas one day.
