Re: Hello from New Zealand

Howdy and Welcome Aboard the Forum Alistair!

I am one of those sailors who hopes to see New Zealand some day, and from what I hear the waters around there are challenging. I am sure you must have lots of experience that others would find helpful or interesting too.

A few of my favorite tips:

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:

Forums 101 - Posting, Accounts, Basics

There are also some "social groups" that are more focused on special interests. I am not a member of those groups, but you should be able to find them if you do some exploring of the forum website, look for "groups."
