Intro.

Hi All,

My name is Allan. I live in the south of England, looking to reacquaint myself with the sailing world, having spent 5/6 years away from it.

I have been sailing, on and off, for approximately 30 yrs, mostly dinghy sailing in the Poole area, and having took the RYA Day Skipper theory and practical in 2003, I would now like to chalk up some mileage, preferably with an Atlantic crossing, so I can eventually take the RYA Yachtmaster and then go global.

Please see my ad in the Crew Available section, soon.

Thanks,

Allan

I have fond memories of the south side of Poole Harbour, boatman61, especially when the sun is shining, - it's a lovely place to relax

Howdy and Welcome Aboard!

You mentioned foils. Are you a Moth sailor by any chance?

Have fun in the forum and good luck on catching a ride to the West!

Hi Steady Hand,

I was referring to aerofoils(sails-wings) as opposed to hydrofoils. I am not a Moth sailor but they look fun and fast!!

Ah…I see. I assume you mean a foil as in what I would call a "paraglider."

I once read about a sailor who did a circumnavigation (75% of it finished) and he took a paraglider foil with him and "sailed" it off Chile and Tahiti (and possibly other places). Looks like fun.

Steady Hand, I always assume nothing! It's usually better that way
