Replying to:First time out
Hi all, This is certainly a quiet forum. I have no idea if there is anyone out there or if my words are just dissolving into the ether. Nevertheless, we have our new RL28 out on the Gippsland Lakes for our first cruise since I bought her over 18 months ago. For the first 12months it was stuck in Queensland with Covid, I then had a major refit carried out with new rigging, headsail etc. So we are now on a jetty at beautiful Steamers Landing with our friends from the Sonata Club to celebrate New Year. Yesterday was our first sail and I must confess in lighter conditions it perhaps didnít perform quite as well as I expected but itís all a learning curve. We have identified numerous changes we would like to make to her to suit our particular needs, in particular, the galley, which Patricia finds too cramped. The sleeping arrangements are not ideal as with my size (2m with girth to match), we donít both fit into the V berth. I must confess that after 45 years of marriage Iím rather a accustomed to a shared bed. But upwards and onwards! If any RL sailors spy U.S. on the lakes please introduce yourselves. Iím very keen to talk to other RL owners and make use of their valuable experiences and expertise. You wonít miss us, our headsail is quite a statement. Regards Alan (Lady Barbara)
