    Hello all,

    I have just bought a MkII W9817 from a trio in Weymouth and brought her back to South Devon not far from where she was originally built in the early 90’s in Totness. My kids have named her “Nugget” after a character from one of their favourite books “The Pirates Next Door” by Jonny Duddle.

    Planning to sail her mainly round the wonderful South Devon coast with my wife, two young sons and which every random friends or family are visiting us at the time (we get a lot of that in the warmer months in this part of the world :-).

    I have sailed a whole range of boats over the years starting with Seagull and Mirrors as a kid then moving on to 60 foot ketches with the Ocean Youth Club http://www.oytscotland.org.uk/ in my 20’s mainly on the west coast of Scotland and some charters both in this country and Greece.

    More recently I have been Sailing Toppers and National Solos with the very friendly Teign Corinthian Yacht Club http://www.tcyc.org.uk/ and spent a lot of last summer with Rana, a 20-foot Privateer trailer sailer http://kermitg-privateer.posterous.com/ that is now up for sale due to the birth of my new baby daughter.

    So hello and thanks for a great site, hope to see you on the water some time.

    Dave
