Hello from Yorkshire, England

Hi all,

Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself.
Im a novice as far as sailing is concerned, 7 days sail in the med last year, 7 more coming up in may.
Looking to take day skipper course by end of this year.

Hoping to turn this into a life long passion and learn new skills along the way.

Cheers,
Jim

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here even though I wouldn't be able to understand the language if I heard it. Or is that "erd it?"
