Hello from Melbourne , Australia.

Just a short note to introduce ourselves, we are in the process of refitting our 1982 Olympic 40 with the aim of sailing to the Whitsundays in April 2010 and eventually to Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga etc.

Have been following this Forum for quite some time now and found it to be most informative and interesting.

Take care everyone
