Who I am and why Iím here

Hello, Iíve joined recently, am impressed by what I find on the website (though still figuring out how to find some of it) and pleased to introduce myself. Iím a semi retired crusty with a 37í wooden boat which I bought eighteen months ago and am nursing back to health. I sailed her last year from the UK to the Med, won the trophy in the Viareggio classic boat rally, wintered her in Marina di Grosseto and had hoped already to be moving her south and then east but am prevented by coronavirus restrictions. Nonetheless I hope to sail to Sicily and across to Greece in June and maybe as far as Istanbul by July. I enjoy music, laughter and generally chilling in mediterranean ports and bemoan the lack of wind in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the summer months. Iím keen to meet other boat owners, particularly those with classic yachts, and potential crew; and to learn from the experiences of others. (Iíve no objection to GRP. I owned a GRP Westerly for 23 years and sailed her from the UK to the Med.) When weíre allowed back on the water I hope to meet many of you there. Leatherman

Welcome Leatherman! Post some pictures when you can so we can all live vicariously through each other's projects.
