About Me

Been sailing for over 30 years, currently in-between boats, previously owned a number of boats ranging from a Tracker up to a Farr 1020 (shared ownership).

Never owned or sailed on a Raven however over the next couple of years could look at purchasing one, most proberbly a 26.

Know my way around boats (yachts especially) quite well, if anybody needs assistance on anything drop us a line and you never know your luck, I might be able to assist. Last project I was invloved with on a yacht was completely stripping down and overhauling a Volvo Penta 2002 motor.

About Me

Will get on to the photos anon, but we (Christine & Guy) own Frith, a 26. We are casual sailors, who from time to time take Frith out to go places. We live in Dunedin and would like to hear from anyone in the ROA that gets this far S. We have a cruising, rather than racing orientation. So it is that we appreciate the easy sea motion of the R 26. We brought Frith back from the Marlborough Sounds and are planning to take her to Stewart Island in the not too distant future (well, that's the plan anyway).We invite discussion from any of the ROA membership. Cheers - Guy

About Me

We live in Bayswater, Auckland, the Tarragon is our first keeler having previously owned a couple of trailer sailers and tinnies. We have a fairly ordinary income, two children and probably shouldnt own a boat if we were sensible about things, We are into our fourth year of ownership and have had such a good time over those years (and spent so much money on improvements)
