Hello from Hong Kong

We are a family of four who currently live and work in Hong Kong. I am an avid sailor, the wife less so and our two little girls have only ever been on the ferry. To correct this we just purchased our latest boat, an Oyster 53, 2002 vintage. Previously, my wife and I cruised on "Tehani-li," a Tayana 52 for three plus years around Asia, across the IO, up the Red Sea and across the Med, finishing end of 2004. As we are getting back into sailing after a long hiatus to start a family, I thought I would read and post some on the Cruisers Forum since we may have relevant experience going to places others may or may not find useful. I recently have posted our previous logs on our website (www.yourcruisingplan.com) and some other musings sailing related, as well.
Cheers.
Dhillen

Re: Hello from Hong Kong

Thanks. I just uploaded a photo - rather unexciting - of her in her berth. We haven't even had a chance to sail her yet!

Hi Dhillen

Nice boat! Hope to read more from you. I used to be in HKG, now around Sing and Phuket. Good luck.

Re: Hello from Hong Kong

Thanks! We are very excited but she is currently in Seattle and we are....here. We purchased our last boat in Langkawi, Malaysia, and spent a lot of time in Phuket - doing boat work of course!
Cheers.
