Greetings to all

Hello I am a liveaboard solo sailor currently in UK with my yacht undertaking a trip from Port Solent to final destination Liverpool.

Not in any rush I enjoy the active routine of solo sailing, though occasionally take a crew member if after mile building, experience, the buzz or are just wanting a try at sailing venture. adventure with new sights, sounds and events.

I have been in boating world for more than a decade with a huge amount of sea miles as I sail in all seasons. Life is to me what you make of it.

My dreams are already a reality I just keep adding to them hoping never to wake in a nighmare. ;-)

To me every day is an adventure ...

Underway:

Next port ETA Falmouth Harbour 23rd July (Area South UK Cornwall)
Expected Dep: 26th July to Penzance (Newlyn Area South UK Cornwall)
Then:
Port: Padstow (Area South UK Cornwall, ready for Bristol Channel crossing) ((4th time this year for Bristol channel))
Port: Milford Haven (Area Pembrokeshire UK)
Port: Fishguard (South West Wales UK Dyfed)
Port: Pwllelli (Llyn Peninsula North West Wales UK)
Port: Holyhead (Gwynedd North Wales UK)
Port: Conway (North Wales UK Conway County formely Gwynedd)
Port: Liverpool (Merseyside UK)

Hello Thestar,

I am a junior member as well and this is my first reply to any posting in this forum. Please be so kind and reply so that I can learn about basic functions in the forum. Please write simple because my English is not at itīs best.

I have stepped into this forum because - after getting used to this kind of communication - I want to start a new thread for promotion of an educational sailing project.

greetings chris

That was quick...

Thank you for answering. My native language is german, Spanish only simple basics, so letīs stay with English.
The project is about poor children who are invited to sail together, but itīs too compex to explain in a few sentences. In some days I hope to be experienced enough to start a thread with presentation of the project.

Just before I started my first thread offering informations about sailing area Croatia, which was my favourite area for years. Doing this I want to collect knowhow for using the forum as good as possible. At this moment Iīm not even able to find out how to subscribe a thread - in "thread tools" itīs only possible to "unsubscribe" them.

Please explain what you mean with "liveaboard" solo sailor.
Iīm looking forward to your answer, but I might not be able to reply immediately because Iīm about to return home, my children are waiting.
best wishes
gtx chris

Most welcome

Hi Chris,

Sorry a Liveaboard means I live on my yacht and have no land property or address. A home afloat.

Your project sounds like a good idea and cause hope it all goes well for you.

I would like details of Croatia sailing waters if you get time please do let me have some details.

Read the HELP section for Thread options it is easy once you understand them.

kindest regards

Thestar

Liveaboard and Croatia

Oh sorry, what a stupid question did I ask - now after reading your explanation I think the meaning of the word would have been so easy to find out myself...

For sure Iīd like to supply you with some informations about Croatia. But donīt you think it would be better to do this in the other thread? Only then other users searching these infos could as well profit by our conversation.

Just have a look at: "Sailing in Croatia - ready to give informations"
Maybe you could ask a certain question there which allows a rather short answer - and continue with the next question next time.

I hope to see you over there -

gtx chris

subscribe to thread

Chris,
The very easiest way to subscribe to a thread that interests you is to post to it. Posting to a thread automatically subscribes you to it. Now I'm subscribed to this one.

PS - The United States Sail and Power Squadrons, a safe boating educational organization, had Sailing Croatia as the cover (full color) article in this month's magazine. Very, very beautiful.

Subscription (thread) and Croatia information

Thank you, Jeff - I checked the power squadrons homepage but couldnīt find the magazine. Anyway, there are lots of official informations available about sailing in Croatia. I thought that my part could rather be to supply someone with detailed information about local matters on a personal level. Thatīs why I started a thread in >Destinations>Iberia and the Med offering such informations. Until now there were no replies.

Thank you also for explanation of thread subscription. This helps me to get used to communication in this forum.


Hello Thestar - are you still here?
