Re: Hello from Tasmania

Hi Jim

Just joined the forum myself, you seem to get around the country a bit, I was in Geelong for the regatta around Australia Day, didn't do any crewing but had a great time, lovely part of the county. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depend on your perspective) our boat is in Turkey.

Cheers MC

Re: Hello from Tasmania

Saw you today anchored in Simmonds Bay ( Barnes Bay).
Sweet boat.
We are just south of Kettering, let me know if you are over this side, maybe come for a meal or something.

Not to steal the welcoming thread, but we will be in Kettering, probably starting Monday arvo. Hopefully having a new mainsail delivered Weds sometime, likely on the outside wall at the marina.

Cheers,

Jim (the old Jim, not the new one!)
