What a great discussion board! I'm very pleased to have found it.
I know just enough about sailing to know I love it. Have assisted with deliveries up and down the Coast of NZ, and clocked up a few thousand NM's. I have much to learn, but do love life at Sea

We all have a lot to learn. Some more than others but even the most experienced sailor is still learning.

Welcome aboard.

Thanks so much for the welcome. - I think I am a long way off buying a boat - I rather suspect my repeated invitations for deliveries is more about my company, and ability to cook standing on a wall, than anything to do with the mechanics of Sailing
I'm happy on the helm and can hold a course, so thats a start.
