Newcomer Introduction from Malta

Good afternoon to all of you.
Thanks for having accepted me as a candidate to join your forum.
I am Belgian.
My mother language is French and my second language is Italian.
Boat is an Elan 37 fast cruising rigged.
She has won the Rolex Middle Sea race in 2005 and is based in Malta where from I tour the Med since four years mainly as a singlehanded.
I am very much interested by technicals questions ( SSB/ Weather Forecasts - incidently the US Navy has recently added as per my demand the results of its COAMPS (18 kms) model for Europe to the GODAE database which is their public's available database - / Navigation & Weather Routing softwares ...) and hope to find some answers through your forum.
Thanks in advance for the replies I might receive.
Cheers and good luck to all of you.
