There's a regular group trip to Refuge Cove on Queens Birthday weekend to take advantage of the safer weather that time of year.

Hi All,

Tony 'Wingman' (an old nickname from when I broke my arm years ago) from Canberra. New to the TS world and currently in the market for a TS of about 20' (Boomerang 20, Sonata 6 & Timpenny 670 are of interest at this stage). Thanks for allowing us onto your site so that we can hopefully reduce the amount of mistakes we make with our first purchase. Not new to boats but definitely to TSers.

Thanks and all the best,
Cheers!

Wingman

Welcome Wingman. Lots of handy information on this site.

When you say "not new to boats", have you been a sailor or a power-boater?

Cheers

Hi Peter and thanks for the welcome!

Power boats are what I'm more familiar with so I'm on a steep learning curve. My wife sailed quite a bit in her earlier years and I'm taking lessons so we should do okay. Canberra has a strong sailing community and we look forward to joining them on the lake very shortly.

Regards,
Cheers!

Sounds promising, especially if your wife loves sailing.

My long-suffering wife likes it on nice days and is getting braver at tolerating the blustery days, but she mainly does it for me.

Hi Everyone,
I'm glad to have found the New Member Intro section. We have been watching this board since early this year as my partner and I have been on the journey to buy our first boat. Now we are proud to say that we are full members of the trailer sailor flotilla! We are the new owners of Sabre 22 Lady Jane and are taking delivery of her from Hastings tomorrow. Lady Jane's been around a while and I am sure that some of you will know her or seen her on the water. Emma and I intend to give her a good life sailing Port Phillip, Westernport and the Gippsland lakes along with our kids.

Although we have a little bit of sailing experience (family boats as kids, bit of crewing, etc) we are quite new to this so we will be grateful of any help, advice or encouragement that other members can give. We're looking forward to seeing you online and on the water!

Regards,

Joe and Emma

P.S. Could I suggest that the Member Intro be moved to a standing item on the front page?

Welcome Joe and Emma, might see you around Paynesville if you get down that way in future. Nearly always some TSP folk on the water in that area at any given time.

Hello All,
My name is Rod, and I'm back in Aus after 38 years away working with boats in UK, Europe, and USA. I live at Nudgee in Brisbane, and will now be looking for a boat to get me out on the bay, as the ramp is two minutes down the road.

I see RL24's for sale at good prices, and I also like the Farr's, but they seem to command a premium. And I have a light 28footer with lifting keel on the cad.....

I taught sailing in keelboats in The Solent and English Channel, built boats in metal and composite and wood.

It's now time to enjoy the sun and heat that I've been missing for too many years. All I need after a boat is a lady to share it with, if anyone knows of someone interested. :D

I hope to see some of you around the anchorages.

Cheers, Rod O.

Hi everyone. My name is Owen. Have been looking over the fantastic wealth of information on here and figures that it's about time to say hi. Have just been bit by the sailing bug, much to the joy of my wife so keen to get into it.

Richard,
If you add your general location to your profile then it helps other that may be nearby to help or advise where to get help better.
Let me know if you need help with the profile part.
