If anyone is interested I have started a sailing blog . We have a Catalina 7 trailer sailer and have just started out, as you will see I am pretty new to sailing but keen to get out and have some fun.

 

Please feel free to comment and offer any helpful tips, I'm learning as I go and I'm not scared to share my mistakes. When I was reading up on sailing I couldn't find enough of this type of thing so hopefully others find it interesting and possibly useful.

 

The site puts the newest blog at the top which is annoying if you want to read in chronological order, so If you want to start from the beginning scroll to the bottom or use the index on the right hand side.

The grass is greenest where you water it......If light is the fastest thing. Then how did the dark get there first?

Brilliant blog kiwifish.

 

I'm from Hamilton also and belong to the Waikato Yacht Squadron. I've got a Moonraker 23 up at a Kawakawa bay.

Hopefully will be heading out for a sail this weekend around Waiheke.

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Regards,

Paul.

Check out this guy over in the US, he has a Catalina and has a good Blog on some modifications (I've adapted a few for my Bonito Aquarius).

Been reading this - it's really cool!  I wish I'd kept such a record when starting out.  But then, I also wish I'd plugged into the clubs earlier too.  You guys have done a great job - I'll look forward to reading your posts - go well! :-)
