Gosh my first real SailBoat.

G'day all,

Names Trent but I get called Bubbles alot.

Living on the hard in Adelaide, dreaming of being on the blue.

Well I just went a got myself my first really sailboat, ie with a keel.

Its a flying fifteen, looks fast, looks fun.

Now just to learn how to work it, have had a sailing cat for a while.

But this has a spinnaker roller furler, and that keel, with no motor.

Hope I dont ding it.

Just googled flying 15. That does look like a cool boat!

Mines a classic not a modern, but I do believe they can get up to 14 knots

Re: Gosh my first real SailBoat.

Is it wood or fiberglass? We here on CF like pictures of boats. When you going to post some?
