new to cruising

Hi , i m from Queensland Australia.
I am looking to get into some cruising with my sonata 6 in my own back yard in mackay then hope to make trips up to the whitsundays.
I also have a laser sailing dinghy which i love mucking around on in the local dams.

Re: new to cruising

G'Day 01,

Welcome to CF! You should be able to achieve your Whitsunday goals if you have time to select a good bit of wx. Trip up should be easy, coming back, not so much! But that's the bearuty of a trailer sailor... if time pressures conflict with wx pressures, there's always the trailer back home.
