Re: Re- introducing myself

Thanks Jeff, appreciate the comments.
I don't know what forum I should have posted on, looked around the site for a while to figure out where to post. First I tried to do a chat, and had to invite a bunch of people that were on, but that wasn't really what I wanted because I wanted to post a thank you to Sailnet for the previous help also.
Thanks again.

Re: Re- introducing myself

alechich,

Feel free to use the General Discussion (Sailing Related) forum to post new threads about anything sailing related. Don't be afraid to start a new thread. If one of the moderators sees that it should be in a different forum, we'll move it, no biggie.

Re: Re- introducing myself

Don't worry about this too much. We promise that it won't stay on your permanent record, at least not for too long....

I would think that your post might have warranted a new thread in 'General Discussion (Sailing Related).' There used to be a thread called something like 'Great sails' but I did not notice it.

Jeff

Re: Re- introducing myself

1. Perth, Western Australia
2. Adriatic Sea

I sail my Spacesailer 24 out of RPYC, Crawley in a Western Australia. I have raced and cruised Maggie May for about 18 years in the region mostly on the Swan river estuary, Fremantle, Rottnest and Garden Islands.

Recently I purchased a share of Seasmith a Bavaria 42Match which is now berthed in Dubrovnik. In July, Chris ( part owner), Jen, Kerry and I sailed her from Crete via Cyclades, Athens, Corinth, Levkas and Corfu to Dubrovnik. Kerry and I cruised some of the wonderful Croatian Islands travelling on to Split. Kerry flew back to work in Perth and my son Riley joined me for the cruise back to Dubrovnik.



Plan is to spend a couple of months each northern summer in the Adriatic with cruising options to Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and Italy. Back in Perth I still actively sail Maggie May for the rest of the time (we sail all year round).

Re: Re- introducing myself

Well, you really did not say which model Beneteau she was. Could have had items such as a fixed 3 blade prop for cruising, loaded down for cruising, etc.. There are so many variables. It does sound like an Oceanis series which is primarily a bulb wing keel cruising boat, comfort first. With your rating you could look up other boats that you would like to run against. PHRF, does post a list of ratings for pretty much any boat out there. Capt La

Re: Re- introducing myself

Sorry also Capt La,
I went back to re-read your original post and saw you were talking about a Beneteau; I think it really didn't sync with me the first time I posted since I was just posting to what I thought sounded like a thread that just talked about sailing experiences. I certainly wasn't intending to dis your post or your boat! I always admired B's in the Caribbean when I've seen them. I was a little exuberant I guess that my old boat could compete with some of the newer ones, even though I knew little about the B in question. Actually it is moored a few boats down from me and I saw later that it said "31" so I guess its a 31 foot Beneteau but don't other wise know the model. And as I stated this was on only one reach and have no idea what the result would be on other ones more into the wind.
Thanks for the info on rating and racing but I think I'm more of a cruiser and will probably only perhaps race an appropriate looking boat on a casual basis.
Fair winds.

BTW LawrenceU, enjoyed your post. My parents are from Croatian coast and I always wanted to sail around there.
