Greetings from the South Coast - UK
Second post, the other being a request for info on Colvic Victor 40s. Thought I'd also just introduce myself as well.
Got into sailing via a Mirror dinghy about 10 years ago when my father-in-law was about to chop one up for fire wood. I rescued it after a quick chat, restored and sailed her for a couple of seasons before moving up in size via a Wayfarer, then a 17ft bilge keeler (which I can no longer remember the make and model of). Following that a friend got me involved in his Nicholson 303, which was great fun if light weight for anything more than F6. Have raced and cruised for the last several years and my partner and I are now looking to live onboard full time. Good job she's into sailing really! Initially will be UK based but in time, after retirement, may head for the sun somewhere, who knows.
Anyway, hello (again) from Dave & Tara.
