First trip outside the harbour on new boat...

Did my first single handed trip of any note this weekend. Its winter here but had a fantastic time, no major incidents and to top it all was escorted into the anchorage by some dolphins. Fantastic trip and got some on camera. Thought i would share the Aroha!

Looks like a great boat and I am always happy to see people living their dreams but thanks! Thanks for not using "sail away with me now honey" as the sound track!

Re: First trip outside the harbour on new boat...

Thanks,

sail away with me honey.... nice song that, but I hear you!

Really loving the boat as you can probably tell, and i couldn't have asked for a better first trip. Boat is a 1969 Lidgard 32, really nice order and a pleasure to sail. Very happy so far.

I'm envious. I so want to get out for my fist solo to a destination.

Your sound when your talking was really hard to hear.

I was testing my new gopro camera in a waterproof case which is why the sound was dodgy... there is another case which is supposed to be better for sound. Will give it a go next time....we live and learn!
