Im based in Port Macquarie and recently bought a boomerang 20. I am pretty inexperienced as I have only been sailing for less than 6 months.

Hi Macca, you will find this site excellent. Norma and I (Andrew) are based in Kempsey and travel down to Lake Macquarie once a month for a weekend of racing with the NHTYA (they also have cruisers). If you want to tag along at any time just let me know. We are heading down this weekend on the Friday after work (19/8/16).

David, welcome to TSP.

Your image is WAY bigger than it can be displayed here (5312 pixels wide versus 500 pixels wide displayed, over 100 times as much data to download); if you want to link an image to a bigger version you can do something like this:

[url=http://emilyjanegrace.com/20151214_1139 ... ersion.jpg]
[img]http://emilyjanegrace.com/20151214_1139 ... ersion.jpg[/img]
[/url]

Clicking on the small version will then display the bigger version.

I've disabled bbcode in my reply, so you can see the coding, and broken it up with line breaks for clarity, but they are unnecessary.

Hi,

Jeremy from Perth. Recently inherited a WA built Red Jacket that hasn't seen love for a decade or so. My dad owned a Red Eagle from new in the 70s-80s. Will be nice to have another Red in the family.

Welcome aboard; from the sound of it, you should buy a pressure washer with the coins you'd otherwise feed into a car wash!

Hi guys,

Thanks for letting me in :)

I live on a Red Witch currently moored on the Brisbane river while I get my project boat finished (some time in the next few years at this rate)
It's a bit squishy, but it's livable.

Hi everybody,
New here, and we think this is what we are meant to do as an introduction.
Not sure what to say, but some back ground.
Both have sailed as youngsters, many moons ago.
The spark is still there and has seriously been reignited.
About to take procession of a Cal 14, yes as I type, in 8hrs we are about to embark on a 2000km journey to pick our baby up.
We are basically land-locked in the middle of Aus, being 3 and 5 hrs from a decent water body.
That in its self is not going to hold us back.
We have all winter to get set ,test,(hopefully 3/4 times, then we are off come December.
We have been reading posts her quite avidly, and I hope if we ask questions that we don't sound to stupid.
I guess that's all for now, until we can post some pics and bore everybody to death with questions,
Cheers for now. T and L :?

Welcome T & L,
Did you buy the CAL from Nimmitabel? As you will see from my avatar, I have one and there are a few others on the forum. There is also a dedicated thread for CAL 14 owners and I'm sure you will be able to share a bit of information along the way with us.

Where will you be sailing the little CAL?

Pictures and a bit more information when you get a chance please.

Cheers,

Peter

Hi, I am Richard Wolf from Bayside area of Melbourne. I am a relative novice sailor, having some dinghy sailing experience and now crewing regularly in club races on a Bavaria 38. I am in the early stages of looking at buying a trailer sailer as it looks to be a great step into owning a boat without being tied to the expense and location of a larger moored boat. I am very interested in coastal cruising as my wife and I love sailing, fishing, snorkelling and generally being on the water.

Howdy.

I'm based in melbourne, and do a fair bit of keeler racing in the bay.

I'm looking to get myself a trailer boat later this year so i'm not relying on othet people's boat's to get my sailing kicks.

So far the forum has been super helpful in terms of narrowing down what i want, and what I should be looking for (so thanks already!)
