Will my hopes be dashed here?
Hope not.
Welcome.. nice to have you here.

Plenty of discussion on the topics you listed, but I suppose they are of wide enough interest that they go into general discussion, or learning to sail rather than hersailnet. Of course you are free to start a thread in hersailnet on any of those topics, and I encourage you to do so.
