Introduction from Kristian

Hello !
New to this forum that I have to admit I have come across on numerous searches on the Internet.
Im a Swedish guy that have been sailing since childhood. I have also been bulding/ rebuilding GRP and Wooden boats and are at present the proud Owner of two classics , one OE 36 ( Swedish masterdesigner Olle Enderlein one of the men behind Hallberg Rassys succsess story) and one Grand Soleil 52.
The Oe 36 is in the final stage of a total rebuild and the bigger Grand Soleil is our cruiser in the Med based in Castelsardo on Sardinia.

I have recently retiered early from Scandinavian Airlines where I held a few management positions besides being a pilot, Before that I flew Fighters in the Swedish Airforce.

I would love to find and share information with you on everything around and about yachts and cruising.
If you have questions on cruising the Swedish Westcoast where Im born or perhaps Sardinia or Croatia in the Med do not hesitate to see if I can be of any help.

I do have to ask you to be patient with my writing not in my own language and that this someimes can cause the spelling and grammar slipping a bit..

Thanks for letting me into your great Forum,
Rgds

Kristian

Valkommen Kristian, your english is great, there seems to be
many pilots who are also sailors.
Good luck on your retirement!
Would love to hear about sailing in the Adriatic and Croatia.
