I thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself, as I hope to meet some of you over the coming months.
I sail a recently acquired Skipper 17 ("Dipper") on Strangford Lough, based out of East Down Yacht Club. I grew up sailing a family Drascombe Scaffie on Carlingford Lough and some summer holidays on Lough Erne. I have since sailed and crewed on 'bigger boats here and there', whilst working 'here and there', before returning to Northern Ireland and sailing a number of boats on Strangford including a 420 and an Albin Vega.
I plan to sail Dipper as a family day sailer, and a cruising craft with my daughter (currently 5 years old), and also I hope with my brother and his kids who also has a Skipper 17 (based on Carlingford Lough).
I look forward to meeting you at future rallies etc!
