I'm New to everything! Hi Guys.. Boats?...

Hey guys, I'm Pretty new to all of this, Getting my first boat next week hopefully its a 21ft sail boat with a 4hp engine (don't know whether its good or not) But I've never sailed haha, I'm going to be going to France hopefully in the next few weeks, Just wanted to say hi to everyone and also anyone know any good places to sail too thats sunny? ^_^... theres four of us going, anyone else is welcome to come along sailing with us on their boats too, be a fun adventure...

I've been watching videos on the basics about how to tack a boat and how to raise the sails and the sails clutch etc

Would you go on a rugby forum and ask questions about netball? This site is for powerboats, a quick look around would've made that pretty obvious...

I hope you enjoy your sailing boat, but this isn't the place for them

Hang on Paul, I could saw down the mast and sell him a 225. I'd even throw in an old foot throttle.

Give the guy a chance

welcome!! to be fair this is more of a performance boat site and nothing here sail related. sell the sail boat and get a nice hard boat and nice engine.

I suppose atleast you are not a ribber.

Just watched the Videos Lmao Very funny, See yatchs aint that bad, I would actually love to get a speed boat if I wanted fun, But I wanted to travel, and get away from england, I thought a yatch is best that way you have a room to sleep and you can still sail with your friends lol

But all seaman should stick together (lmao)

Hey Bob,

perhaps a little off-topic, but here are some nice videos for you from the last French Championship season. I hope that you don't know all of them yet:

Solenzara:

Six-Fours:

Valras:


Best regards
