Cool Hello from Oz

Hi All,

I am in my late 20's and based on the over side of the world from the vast majority of you in Sydney Australia. For the past couple of years I have owned Sandgroper a Supersonic 27, which I cruise locally around A beautiful area known as Pittwater.

Bored of my job and looking for something to do on weekends when I was 22 I decided to take some sailing lessons, I was basically looking for a hobby, however what I discovered instead was a passion and a lifestyle.

My dream ever since has been to say goodbye to the rat race and become a fulltime cruiser. The way I figure it, life is too short to not. Meantime I am reading everything I can get my hands on, making every mistake I can on my current boat, and have just embarked on a search for my 'ideal' bluewater cruiser(a controversial hotly debated concept I know!)
