Hello Everyone

Just a quick post to introduce myself as a new member.

My names Kev Robinson and I come from Pontefract, West Yorkshire. As of September last year I became the latest custodian of Silver Twister and she’s based in Lowestoft for the time being.

Ill out myself now as being a relatively novice sailor and bought a Twister on her reputation for being sea kindly and “forgiving”. The very limited amount of sailing I’ve been able to do since September seem to have proven this reputation and I’m very happy with her.

Im currently in the process of doing some subtle updates internally and sorting some minor jobs topside, namely sealing a slightly leaky composite top,rebedding stantions and getting prepped to paint the deck, all exciting stuff.

I look forward to meeting some of you in the future.

All the best

Kev

Hi Kevin, 

You chose the right yacht. You will soon get to grips with it all and I've found my yacht is very forgiving of my ineptitude 🙂

Hi Kev,

We bought ours two and half years ago and she's been brilliant.

We're hoping to get up to Lowestoft in early August, so I'll keep an eye out for Silver Twister!

Cheers,

Crispin

Hi all

If you go to MY ACCOUNT and then to MEMBERS LIST you can search all Members. The CONTACT button, when clicked, will automatically raise an e-mail to the Member. On a Windows PC this will be raised in the Microsoft Mail App. I don't use that...but if you configure it you will see the address. If you use a smartphone...it will use your preferred e-mail account. 

It was done this way so we didn't present an easy to download list of Members' emails.

I'll try and remember to remind everybody next e-mail I send out.

Hi Kevin - never made it sadly! We got as far as Aldeburgh, but the weather closed in...

Hopefully next year!
