Hey, my handle is "Oronsay" and I've been reading the CF treads daily... very interesting. I wanted to reply to some recent threads, but realized I hadn't fully signed up. So here I am. I love the wide range of topics, and the expertise that shows up. I am a physicist/engineer who dropped out back in 1977-78 to sail from Dana Point
, Calif to Fanning, Samoa
. Then turn around and sail back via Tonga
. I hope to jump in from time to time (when I have something of value to add). Cheers all!
