I thought he said she had a heavy ass.
I really got to look in to getting hearing aids.

Absolutely Jonesy. She knows where her towel is. Its easy to understand how they have made it half way round the world. First rate sailors I'd reckon. Good fun, down to earth and practical. Not preaching from any sailing bible, just looking for the stuff that works.

Hey Bruce .... mellow eh ? Must have caught me on an off day. The Wombet will be most amused to see me described as mellow. Incorrigable old fart is closer to her assessment.

Re: Killarneys visit Sydney

Certainly want to thank Andrew and Wendy for their hospitality and for sharing their beautiful harbour with us. Would be a lovely place to live if money were not a consideration. For all those who wonder what TDW is like in person, pretty much as he is in cyberspace, although a tad more mellow - although the mellowness may alter depending on who is on board.

We are back on Ainia and looking for a departure northbound in very early May. We are flying to NZ on Friday for a two weeks and then back to getting Ainia ready (haul and paint and pull the stick). Boat was fine except for some mildew issues. Apparently a very rainy summer in Queensland (again).

Always fun to meet Sailnet people in real-life.

Just as long as you pay the airfare ....

I started out as a drizzly drear old day but cleared up. No wind really so what sailing we mangaed was little more than a drift but we anchored in a nice spot, whiled away the afternoon eating, drinking and talking, then sailed verrrrrry slowly back up harbour as the sun went down. Good stuff.

Killarneys visit Sydney

Yesterday the Wombet and I had the pleasant task of showing Bruce (Killarney Sailor) and his other half June, around Sydney harbour on board the Womboat.

Not much of a sail but hey we certainly enjoyed your company and conversation.

Anytime you like, you'll be more than welcome. Trust the trip back to Brisbane (flying) was uneventful and that Ainia is all OK.

Cheers

Andrew B
