1st year on Lagoon 380

Hi all... we have just completed our first season as new sailors cruising around the Ionian on our 2011 Lagoon 380. For anyone who saw our early attempts at med mooring and to any boats we bumped on the way in ... we apologise !!

As the year went on we became more competent at both sailing and mooring so hopefully we have learned a lot in this our first year.The Ionian islands of Corfu, Lefkas and Kefalonia are a great place to learn, the weather is forgiving ( mostly ! ), it is easy to slip into a port or harbour if things get rough and the people are just so friendly.

It's difficult to compare our boat with others as we have never sailed anything else, but in our opinion the Lagoon is just perfect for the Ionian - small enough to get into all the ports and bays while giving enough space for 7 or 8 people.

We have had quite a few maintenance issues but nothing we did not expect having read all the forum posts before we bought a boat !All in all we are two very happy newbies - apart from watching her being hauled out for the winter ( we nearly cried !! ). Is it nearly April yet !!

Our boat is pretty distinctive as Lagoon decided to put a big motiff down the sides ... so if you saw us during the season please say hello !!
