Hi

Hi 😁
New member, just joined.based Isle of Wight.
Have been boat mad since a child, lots of dinghy sailing from 6-12 yrs then got into weekly crewing on local round the cans racing, channel crossings, round the island race, and a bit of grown up racing which put me off for a while!😂.
Not sailed since the kids arrived but there now old enough to start enjoying the sea, so just got us a jag white silk 28’. to play on in the Solent and south coast, and once schooling’s done a trip through the french canals is being considered.
Looking forward to chatting.

Re: Hi

Welcome to CF, Wynston,

I'd love to see a picture of your 28 footer, if you care to share. In case you need it there's a tutorial here: http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...st-133457.html

Fair winds,

Ann

Re: Hi

Welcome -

Is this yours or maybe sister ship?

Distant Shores had a great series on their TV series of their trip in France. Here is a summary of their trip. It looks like an awesome trip.
They have other segments in their youtube channel as well.

Sounds like heaven, Wynston!

Never had a chance to see the French Canals when I was over on your side of the Pond, but I'm very familiar with your stomping grounds (Solent) and I especially love the Isle of Wight. <Sigh>

Very welcome aboard the Forum!
Warmly,
