Hello X, you are in a wonderful part of the world spent 20 years touring those waters and if it was warmer would still be there. All the very best from Belize .. Paul

Re: Hello, from beautiful British Columbia!

X, I saw your Sand Heads thread but I guess I missed this one. Welcome to SN...I'm just a bit north of you. Enjoy and hope to see you out there some time.

BTW, I had the pleasure of meeting Faster, who came out to see my little boat today. If everyone on Sailnet is as nice as he, this is a great forum to belong to!

Re: Hello, from beautiful British Columbia!

Hi Steve, I passed Campbell River many times in early seventies on the way to Port Hardy and out to fish. Truly Gods country, but I don't do cold anymore. Great video .. one of the first fish farms in BC was on our property on saltspring island .. Great success to You .. WOW! ... Paul

Re: Hello, from beautiful British Columbia!

Hi Mystic, I have actually seen your boat when I have been out sailing! I am moored at Reed Point presently, but will be changing that up pretty soon with a possible move to Victoria. Looking forward to seeing you on the water!

I couldn't help but notice that there seem to be a fair number of hardcore sailors on the boards, of whom I am not one. I did most of my sailing from age 8 to 20, having started on my very own Sabot, moving on to a Penguin (did I ever flip a lot of those over!), then on to racing the 110 class (so loved hanging out on the trapeze) while serving as crew on a 46' ketch..... all that out of the Manila Yacht Club in the Philippines, and all that before life got in the way.

Now, over 30 years later, I have just purchased an older 27- footer, and am eager to get out there. I've named her Mystic, and although she isn't fancy, I know she'll do just fine at helping me re-learn the ropes. Since taking ownership a couple of weeks ago, and having spent intimate time with her getting her spruced up and ready to sail, I have once again begun to feel those same emotions that I felt back in the latter half of the 60's, following the adventures of Robin Lee Graham on Dove & Dove ll (thanks to the National Geographic Magazine).

Well, nice to be on board here, and look forward to being a part of the community.

Fair winds to all!

X

welcome as well
