New Members from Perth

Good Afternoon to all,
we have been using your fantastic site for the past 18 months or so. We have watched people who want to live there dreams, asking advice and received good advice, then head off and buy boats/learn to sail and take of on there lifetime adventures. My wife and I have just purchased our dream boat and take delivery of it in 58 days 14 hours and 3 minutes
Now... But hey who's counting. We will leave Cairns on the 09 July and start heading back to Perth arriving around Mid September. I look forward
to meeting some of the locals and continue to read about the adventures that everyone else is having. Maybe meet some of you along the way.
Our vision is to continue sailing around Perth area gaining additional knowledge and experience until our youngest turns 18. 4years 61 days to go. Oh nearly forgot we have purchased a Grainger Chincogan 41.

Regards

Jason and Fiona
Nearly the owners of
S/V Kinetic Energy
58days to go

Re: New Members from Perth

Welcome, Jason and Fiona .

That would be a great dream vessel and a great first trip.

When you pass Lizard Island do a side trip and snorkle if you don't dive the Cod Hole arguably on of the world's best large fish dives. Most sailors miss it
.
Grainger the designer and Chincogan the builder are highly regarded.

Any photos ??

Great looking vessel.

Will keep a lookout in case she comes into Mackay on her way north.

Cheers

Re: New Members from Perth

Welcome aboard, I assume you already have arranged suitable berthing in Perth for your new pride and joy otherwise it can be a pain!
