Scarcity of Australian posts

Post by NiceAft »

When it’s cold here in the northeast U.S., that’s when posts from down under supply the sailing adventures that help pass the time while our Mac’s sit under tarps.

The last Australian posting was in January, and that was just to say they were successful in acquiring a Mac; the previous post were in October.

This is a non political inquiry. Not interested in views on COVID protocols here or there (they will be deleted), just where are our Australian mates.

t suppose some may have been like myself, COVID restrictions have curtailed activities. Down south here it is nearing or at the end of the season. Mind you now up north are having issue with unprecedented rain and floods/

Sea Shadow,

It’s good to see a response.

I just happened to notice that there was a void in communications from anyone in OZ. I’m going to guess that most on this forum are like myself, not aware of what you in Australia are up against.

Here’s to hoping that next year you can make up for lost time on the water.

My plan is is to start getting the boat ready now and hopefully get an early start around August into the better weather. Luckily we don't have the winters you have, they are a bit milder, and I can potter around getting things done. Have a new steering to fit and a set of rudders both courtesy of Blue Water Yachts.
