Nereide

Hi, my real name is Steve. Zenzero was the name of our cat who is no longer with us. I took his name for my screen name. It means "Ginger" in Italian.

Nereide is the name of my half-boat.

The other half belongs to a guy called Max.

I sailed a little as a kid growing up in the Firth of Clyde and later as a young adult in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. 25 years had gone by when on a whim I enrolled in a dingy sailing class ... and now Nereide, Max and our families cruise the Tyrrhenian sea whilst dreaming of going further afield - to Greece and then Turkey.

Owning a poorly maintained 20 year old wooden boat has its challenges; which I hope to face with the help of the forum.

Re: Nereide

James,

Thanks! She's a very uninteresting monohull with an unwholesome smell below deck!
