Hello from Scotland

Hi all.
My name is Jim Park from The Isle Of Arran. Not sailing today due to the torrential rain and 60+ knot winds. "Iesa" is a Seacracker or Tyler TG 33, home port is swing mooring in Lamlash Bay.
Intrests:- Marine and old engines, Marine electronics, Ham radio, and of course sailing. Present project is to use the spare juce from my wind turbine to heat water for an under floor heating systeb to keep Iesa warm for free this winter, as we have plenty of wind here.

All the best

Jim

Hello, Jim, and welcome to Cruisers Forum.

Only 60 knots? Why not put a reef in her and go on out?




Just kidding!

Glad to have you here, and I hope you enjoy the Forum.

Welcome Jim,

There are a few of us Scots on the Forum and it is always nice to welcome another. Not many people realise just what a beautiful cruising area the West of Scotland provides, so it will be your pleasant duty to update the forum regularly with your exploits (However I would wait until the wind drops a wee bit....maybe 40knots).

Best Regards

Alan

PS Its 32 and 12 here.(That 32 c and 12 knots wind) But the Glenmorangie tastes the same.

Fit like?

Good to have ya aboard!

It sounds as though you're having a bit of the same weather as us here in the Pacific Northwest. It's almost rained everyday for the past month. But that's what makes the summers so much better!

Welcome, a lovely place to sail.

I taught sailing out of Rhu for 2 seasons. I loved the sailing, the beer, the malts and the people. We are sailing from the Caribbean to Scotland in 2011...see you in Lamlash Bay summer of 2011.

Thanks for the warm welcome. No rain today for thefirst time in weeks, only lovely clear blue skies and a notherly that would cut you in half.

Life is for the living, learning and loving.

All the best

Jim
