Colin Boylan

Secretary


"DID OR DO YOU OWN A RL24?"

Where is that boat NOW?

 2023 will be 50 years of RL24’s
The RL24 Owners Association is keen to build a history on as many boats as possible.  So, we are on a mission to locate as many old boats as possible to compile this historical list.

 

If you own or have owned a RL24 that we may not know about, we would love to hear from you.
We are keen to know the boat name, sail number, which MK version she is, and where she might be NOW?

 

To be part of this RL24 muster, please email Association Secretary Colin Boylan to provide any information you might have on old RL24’s. boylan.colin@gmail.com

It would be also suitable for existing owners of trailables who need to improve their basic sailing skills.

YV instructors.

Venue is Hobsons Bay YC close to Melbourne.

From Wayne Hill

We just had a classic long weekend down on the Gippsland Lakes - perfect weather, plenty of sailing and great company.
 

A highlight was meeting Pat and Ray on their RL28- Sans Peur.


Many Association members will recall that they owned and raced a succession of RL24s - as each new mark came out.
 

San Peur is beautifully maintained and Pat and Ray continue to pick the great anchorages as they cruise "the lakes". Their recollections of travels adventures in RLs was inspiring.
 

They pass on their regards to other RL24 owners.
