Hello from Sydney, Australia

Hi all,

I'm somewhat new to sailing (as an adult anyhow). I sailed with dad in my early teens and since moving to Sydney a few years ago picked up sailing on lasers and now on a J24 as part of a small team.

Yet to begin racing though.

My real interests are in cruising and off-shore sailing as I'd like to one day circumnavigate Australia.

Love to hear from anyone who may have completed such a voyage.

Happy sailing,
Benj

Welcome SB,
there is nothing like heading down to you local yacht club and see if you can get on as crew on the Wednesday, Friday or Saturday races. Its a great way to meet like minded people who I have no doubt will be able to asssit you and at the same time gain valuable sailing experience.

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF BENJ!

It sounds like you have a dream, and one many of us share. Learning from what you can read on this forum can help that dream become a reality.

Bon Voyage on the Forum and on the water too.
