Johnthebowman Hi Jill,

Only just seen your reply so sorry to take a few days to respond.

My boat is a Westerly Centaur currently ashore at PME yard in Fareham. I'm a member of Fareham Sailing and Motorboat club and often drink in The Castle In The Air pub or our sailing club.

When I first bought my boat she was moored at Premier marina Gosport and the staff know me well.

Yes I would love to meet up for a drink. Perhaps I could introduce you to the sailing club? Many more sailors in there and cheep beer and food.

Gota post this now as I gota go. We have a sailing club band that I play in and I'm late as the practice is tonight

DrifterJill Hello from sunny Gosport John. I have just seen your post on my introductory thread. Can't believe I have found another member in the UK and it turns out they sail in the same waters.

If you ever need a (in)competent crew member then let me know. I sail quite frequently from Gosport premier marina so come down and meet us if you ever fancy a sail or even a drink in the local tavern. You would be most welcome.

This invitation obviously extends to the remainder of the Sailnet community too, although I do appreciate it may take some of you a little more effort to get there. Anyway, it's the Castle Tavern, Mumby Rd, Goport. You will find me at the bar with a dry white wine and some very dry company!

smackdaddy Yeah - she's a great boat. Catalina's rock.

But honestly, I wouldn't take her out into open water to save my life.

Johnthebowman Thanx SmackDaddy

I just googled the C27 to see what sort of vessel she was. Looks a bit cruiser racer ish. Very nice

smackdaddy The best thing to do is click "New Posts" at the top of the forum page. Find something that interests - and vehemently disagree with everyone. That's how I got started anyway.

I sail a C27 - very poorly. And I've learned a hell of a lot on this site. Some great people around here from all over the place.

Johnthebowman Whew! Smackdaddy.

I wouldn't want to upset anyone especially as I only just joined! LOL

Is this the part of the site to have a conversation? What sort of sailing do you do and where?
10-18-2009 09:04 PM
smackdaddy Heh-heh. Just kidding. Welcome.
10-18-2009 09:02 PM
Johnthebowman Ooops! Your post came up as I was writing a reply to Faster. Thanx for the welcome Smackdaddy

smackdaddy Hey - what am I? Chopped liver?

Johnthebowman Thanx for the welcome Faster
