New in Tas

Just bought lovely little Cavalier 26 in Hobart. Hoping to spend some time poking around Southern Tasmania for the next couple of years.
First keelboat at 65.
I thought it would be much more leisurely than dinghy sailing, how stupid am I. I couldn't walk from aching muscles after day one on the water. Loved it to bits though.

Right-on, Tas!

We have a few Members who are presently in your stomping grounds.

Ann and Jim Cate - both Forum Moderators ("Mods") who liveaboard a custom 46' sloop (I believe) Insatiable.

GiLow - Matt also lives aboard. Hot-$h*t travelling teacher. Not sure if he and his significant other are still there...

Anyway, keep sharp lookout! Forum Members are proximate!

Welcome aboard,
LittleWing77

*By the way, Ann and Jim are in their 80's - if reports are true - so they've got you beat.

Re: New in Tas

FYI, GILow's boat is now in the Adelaide region.

@ Tas Paws, at the moment, Jim and I are at anchor in Port Cygnet. If you come down the Channel, there are plenty of safe anchorages. Mainly good holding in mud and sand....but perhaps you'll mainly be sailing on the Derwent?

Ann
I'll add that if you do come down to Cygnet, make yourself known and join us for a cuppa. And the local club, Port Cygnet Sailing Club has a happy hour gathering every friday evening, commencing around 1630, and all are welcome. It is a very friendly club and group of folks...
