I guess if I can visit the spots and refer to "Terra Australis" it will be quite an adventure.
Thanks for the welcome!

Re: Hi from Oz

Hi Doug and Kate,

we are doing the same as you. We are real beginners and live about 2 km away so we know where Black Rock is!

So hopefully we are heading fo warmer temperatures also. We are taking our time to learn and get ready. Look forward to sailing out through the heads one day.

Keep us informed on your progress.

Scott
