Home Port: land locked, but dreaming

Default Introduction

To introduce myself, - well, I put 'land lubber' as my home port, because its many years since I did any serious sailing - spending hours of my young life sailing with my dad along the Essex (UK) coast - but the sea is still in my blood, and boatyards still hold a special attraction for me.
I have joined this forum, as spokesperson for the group of friends who are concerned about one of their number, Eddie Anker (see post in Overdue Vessels section) and it was with Eddie that I last took to the water (off northern Spain) shortly before he started his long voyage back to New Zealand. A day to remember, a day I remembered my dad, and a day to make me realise that I haven't quite swallowed the anchor yet, and could easily be tempted back, if only my husband was a boating type. (He's not)
I think I shall enjoy 'keeping an eye' on some of the rest of you though, (allbeit with a little envy!) on your travels.

There is no law that says you must pay tax on itemised moments of pleasure.

cheers all.

Hiya Rover, first I hope the Eddie concerns end well. Second, welcome and be assured that sailing is like bicycle riding. It is a skill which is not easily forgotton. Perhaps you could tempt hubby into a small skiff for a bit of coastal or inland sailing. Or get a casual crew spot at the local sailing club

It's a great shame to not do something, which you would like to do. Sailing is so accessible, so exhillerating, relaxing, frustrating and it seems to make a beer go down particularly well.

Oh if only it was that easy!!!
No, seriously, I would enjoy being 'at sea' again, but I am content to look at boats, and watch the sea when I can, and take advantage of offers like Eddies, to 'come and spend the day out on the boat' when they are made.
cheers..enjoy that beer!
