Hello world from Conachair

Every time I come here to have a search through the forums I get "Our records indicate that you have never posted to our site before! Why not make your first post today...."

All right! I Will! You never give up, do you...

Anyway, I sail singlehaned onboard Conachair (Sailing in conachair top) currently in Las Palmas, more exactly in the "sailors bar" by the marina which is nearest broadband access. And don't know if the rest of you have such inability to plan more than 3 minutes ahead as i do but can't decide where to go next. Boatwork at he mo so being real it will be a month or so before i'll be able to do any major passages. And then? Down to Cape Verde and Senegal/Dakar? Poss, not so sure about Cape Verde but heard good things about Senegal. Tricky getting flights though, I work (very) occasionally. Across to Carabbean? Getting a bit late, or why not Senegal then Brazil? Or why not hang around here and then have a look at Madiera/Azores? Possibly. Just thinking out loud, all plans will change in 3 minutes!! Round about when I order another glass of fine red wine.
Hello Everyone!!!!!

Paddy - Conachair

PS - Anyone else here sialing an Ebbtide steel cutter?

We don't have to pay Alan so it's no problem. You are welcome to sift through all the good stuff here and post your own questions now that you are registered.

It really wasn't that hard now was it?

Aha - a true cruiser, doing boat work in exotic places.
Welcome!

You don't get paid, Alan? No wonder I'm having such a difficult time negotiating my raise.
