Hello everyone

Just wanted to say hi from sunny Portsmouth, UK. Only recently learned to sail in February this year and am currently trying to get as much sailing experience under my belt as possible. I have approx 900 miles behind me and this is definitely turning out to be a compulsive hobby!

I'm booked to sail for a week in Portugal in December when I hope to do my RYA Day Skipper and up until that time am getting out on the water as much as I can. I love it!

I've recently been offered my friend's second boat, a Newbridge Navigator for £1000, all she needs is a good clean and repairs to the switch panel so am hoping to hone my skills on her. She is called 'Drifter', hence my user name.

Always glad of any advice and help so will probably be bombarding you all with lots and lots of questions from now on!

Happy Sailing Jill
