Re: Killarneys visit Sydney
Certainly want to thank Andrew and Wendy for their hospitality and for sharing their beautiful harbour with us. Would be a lovely place to live if money were not a consideration. For all those who wonder what TDW is like in person, pretty much as he is in cyberspace, although a tad more mellow - although the mellowness may alter depending on who is on board.
We are back on Ainia and looking for a departure northbound in very early May. We are flying to NZ on Friday for a two weeks and then back to getting Ainia ready (haul and paint and pull the stick). Boat was fine except for some mildew issues. Apparently a very rainy summer in Queensland (again).
Always fun to meet Sailnet people in real-life.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
