Old sailor, new forum

Just to say Hi
WE Sail on the East coast in the North Sea (UK).
Our boat is a Sadler 34 with a deep keel and unusually wheel steering. we also use a "Wind Vane" self steering vane.
Our cruising grounds are the near continent and the Channel Islands.

I am sure I was a member of this forum years ago, Has it changed in recent years ?

We may be blue bottomed, bearded, barnacle encrusted wet weather souls, but we do know how to say tomato's and eat cucumber sandwiches without spitting crumbs all over the place. and, we got you guy's eating limes to stop you dying of the dreaded scurvy

But I appreciate the welcome......

Great site
