      Hi, I finally get around to joining 🙂

      I have two GP14’s, a GRP (10562) and a wooden one (12447), the wooden one is still in a state of repair in the garage but I’ve had it for 20 years. Hoping to get that sea-worthy this side of 2024. The GRP one is so I can still sail and I’ve owned that for about 3 years.

      I am a member of a local sailing club (inland) and before I’m laid to rest I would like to get involved more with cruising and delve moreso into some shore sailing. I have sea-sailed before, but I’m going back 15 years or so, it’s always been inland waters since then, Derwentwater, Ullswater, Poole harbour and my local lake in the SW UK.

      I would ideally like to take the rest of 2021 to start preparations, using the lake as a testing ground, and then 2022 to start joining your cruising meet-ups etc. My next planned excusrsion is Derwentwater in September 2022.

      Thanks for listening/reading,

      Simon.

      Simon,

      Welcome to the Association.

      When you are ready we would certainly welcome you to our cruising events;  although if you are looking for sea sailing I do have to say that,  exceptionally,  for next year’s UK National Cruising Week we are currently thinking provisionally of the Norfolk Broads.

      Hope to see you on the water.

       

      Oliver

      Thank you Oliver for the welcome.

      I have never been to the Norfolk  Broads so more than happy with that 🙂

      Simon.
