Hi from the Coral Coast

http://m.youtube.com/results?q=tinto...0sailing&sm=12

Hi everyone, I've been looking at this site for a few years now and found it to be an amazing resource.My name is Graham and my wife is Clare. We are currently cruising the Queensland coast of Australia on our beloved Tintola, a Lotus 9.2. We are first timers at the cruising life and have been living aboard and travelling for 6 months now. We bought Tintola nearly 3 years ago and set about upgrading her and collecting the all important cruising funds. We are now living our dream and absolutely love the life and the comradery that seems to flourish in the cruising community. I'll try and put up some pics of the boat and some of the beautiful places we have been so far. We are looking forward to meeting you all.
Above is the URL or link to our first Youtube clip we made for friends to try and show a little of what are doing. If you have the time please have a look. Hope you enjoy.

Re: Hi from the Coral Coast

G'Day G&C,

Welcome to CF, guys and to the cruising life. You already know about the benefits of the site, and are out cruising already so many of the admonitions for newbies don't apply. So, just tell us the name of your Lotus and we'll keep out eyes peeled for you as we head south. Oh, your general location would be good too!

Anyhow, enjoy yourselves and post a bit every now and then.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Hi from the Coral Coast

Thanks Jim, and gidday to you. Our boat is Tintola, hard to miss in an anchorage as we have a red hull and blue canvas. Currently we anchored at Glouster waiting for the southerly blow to pass before heading into Airlie on our return to the south-east. We plan to stay a week or so before continuing. What's your location? We also, will keep a lookout for you.

Anchored in outer Pancake Creek today, off for Lady Musgrave tomorrow if the f/c holds, then slowly south. Like to be in Eden in early December or so... who knows what will actually transpire!
