Hi from Australia

Hi, I'm Janelle and I'm getting back into sailing after a break, other than some racing and local cruising. I sailed Greek Peloponnes to Italy in 2010 and hope to get back

Re: Hi from Australia

Well, G'Day all y'all (for happy sailor)

And back on track, welcome to CF Janelle, from an almost Aussie cruiser. You will find a lot of good sorts here, some of which know a lot and some of which know it all. You choose...

Cheers,

Jim

Nice turn of phrase, Jim. And welcome 'home'.
Janelle, welcome aboard, and adopt Jim as your sailing pop. What he doesn't know isn't worth knowing.

Re: Hi from Australia

Well G'day then!I could say I'm as dry as a dead dingo and flat out like like a lizard drinking, but that would probably be annoying to my fellow Aussies who would've heard that already And I really am dry as a dead dingo here in hot Brisbane! Time to crack a tinnie...

Good to have you here.

Re: Hi from Australia

Ever watched a lizard drink..usually lays flat close to ground and water.
However the saying means being busy or you could say as busier than a one armed paper boy on a windy day.
