Hello - grateful to be here

Just to say hello at first, managed to sign up finally, it was nearly as hard as getting into an elite yacht club

Very grateful already for the lots of valuable information and fascinating stories, will come up with many questions and maybe I will have my own stories, worth to share.

Fair winds!

Re: Hello

Extract from the log of my latest adventure:

‘Left wicklow 3am in the middel of january, after the wind and the swell from last niht night calmed down a little, took me an hour to set up the boat started with the engine on, but the wind was good to hoist the main and half the genov, later put in a reef in the mai. Poridge is prepared for the breakfast, utopilot set up al sat check if there is not to much weather helm, log, etc. Doing with 6kn gps speed with 3.5 boat speed, time to go down below and sit down a bit. Just looking at the stars trough the window and the lights from the shore going up and down on the waves while my boat was sailing herself, and then…I do not knw what happend..but I felt this…..
