Introducing Myself as a Newcomer

Good evening all,
I am michaelrh4 and very new to this Forum. I own and sail small 1964 Hurley, model Felicity 20ft. We sail from Warterhead Creek, Kingswear, Devon, UK. My wife and I are also members of the Disabled Sailing Association (Torquay. UK) She committee, self retired President and life member. Our Association owns two vessels a Westerly Centaur and a Hanse 350. We hold Day Skipper and Yachtmaster tickets. My wife does skipper duties for the Association, I have retired back to our little yachy (Having 84 yrs) That's enough for now. Meet you all later.
