Thanks for passing the word around. I'm trying to get my hands on a Hallberg Rassy, but don't think there are too many in Asia. It would be good to catch in at the yatch club for a drink. I'm still thinking where to store the boat - either middle island or SaiKung. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Drop me a note...

I know Philippe has receievd his new Pogo 10.50 and his 8.50 Pogo is still for sale, but I don't know what program you are looking for (racing or cruising). Anyway, I will ask the guy who takes care of my boat in Causeway Bay with his sister. They know all the gossips of the marina, so they might know of some boats for sale. I'm a member of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, and will ask around, and I will also ask my friends from the Hebe Haven Yacht Club.
Will keep you posted.
By the way...what about a beer in the RHKYC some day ?

Welcome Eric and congratulations on your new boat.
So can you tie up at the Jumbo restaurant for dinner?

Hi Eric, Read your posts in the forum. I'm looking for a used sailboat btw 30 - 34 feet. I know you just bought yourself a new one but any chance you came across any used boats in your search? I'm based in Hong Kong as well.

I tried to rig her to be as easy as can be for a start...lazy jacks and bag, furled genoa, etc... so not that fast yet, but the time will come

Very nice!! Beautiful boat, she looks fast too!!
Welcome to Sailnet!

Ok..last of the introduction pictures.
Again, nice to meet you all. See you on the forum
|02-27-2009 09:33 PM|
There she is...but 97Kb max doesn't leave much room for nice pics.
I think I'll open a Gallery, when I have enough interesting pictures to share
Good day to all.

Yep... and a few miles away are a few hundreds of untouched little islands and rocks, white sand beaches and pink granite cliffs. It sounds like yuo've been through this and...is it a sight of regret I just heard ?
As if sailing around Hong Kong was not fascinating enough, it's simply magic to sail through Victoria Harbour and suddenly find yourself heading for shores everything makes you believe you're the first one to see
As for Horse Racing...yes, betting on horses is second job here, and it's great fun to go to the track on a Saturday afternoon.
ps: I need a few days to compresse my pictures to an acceptable size, and I'll post a few of my boat, Victoria Harbour and the horse races if you wish

Presuming you'll be sailing in Victoria Harbor, you'll be enjoying one of the most beautiful and uniquely identifiable cityscapes in the world!
