Back to English - apart from being rude to the others, Welsh takes me too long (1/2 Welsh 1/2 Essex, what do you expect?). So I didn't know "hofrenfad" or " llyswennod" so I looked them up - Did you really say "My hovercraft is full of eels"? Wow! We have meandered further than I thought.

If you daysail a modest boat every weekend on your local waterway, and enjoy it what is wrong with that?
Or if you race with a local club then how is that not sailing??

Surely this is the kind of sailing most people are actually doing for most of their life and therefore the members doing that probably have the most to add here.

How many circumnavigators/long distance cruisers do we actually have here?? I can think of only a handful. How many other members right now are seriously considering it?? Only another handful???

As for food, damn the stuff is good.

More threads about food and less threads about anchors. Thats my 2 cents for the Sailnet Moderators forward-looking visionary review committee

More threads about hamburgers, tacos, roasts in boat ovens, good wine and rum.
Hey isn't it the middle of summer over there???? Get out there and do some non-serious sailing

Is that what I said?

I guess that's what I get for using a bargain Welsh/English phrase book.

There's a phrase book - that's cheating - it should be difficult!

Re: Fond Fairwell

Ah! I'd forgotten. We do seem to be illustrating Chef's point about social vs sailing. Hopefully there is room for both.
