New Kid in Town

Hallo to one and all. I'm an Englishman living in northern Germany, sailing the Baltic both privatly and as skipper/trainer for a sailing school. I sail a 1965 Ranger 29. and enjoyed a 3 month solo cruising the eastern Baltic and learnt to appreciate the friendliness of the Baltic states. For those of you that decide to cruise these tide free waters, I offer you my help and assistance where possible.

Re: New Kid in Town

Hi there Rowingdude, she handles the waves really well, the waves here in the Baltic are short and choppy, not usually so high.
Thanks for the welcome, thanks also go out to jimking100, SkiprJohn, rebel heart and Mark1977, Mark I hope you know there are a lot of friendly helpfull people living in Halifax. After doing an Eskimo roll in the Atlantic and arriving in Halifax on a container ship it was truely wonderfull to recieve so much help and many kind gestures. Thats another story and not really a short one.

To the ships of our seas and the women of our land,
may the first be well capt'nd and the second well manned.

Re: New Kid in Town

Hallo Pete 7, maybe you could advise me as to where I should post the story.
I see you're from the Solent area, thats where I started to sail, school sports, every Thursday afternoon. Probably the only "lessons" where nobody arrived late and volantarily stayed longer.
