Hello from Wellington NZ

Long time watcher, finally decided to organise a Log in to start posting.

I bought my frst Keeler in April of 2014, after spending a number of years as a kid sailing Dinghys and some trailer Sailers in later years.

I have a Raven 26 which is now 40 years old but a capable, roomy, safe and forgiving little boat.

Most of my sailing is in and around the Wellington Harbour, where 20knts is usualy considered to be a fairly calm day!

The (almost) first years ownership has been spent doing the little jobs that you always seem to do when you buy a new boat and generally getting to know the boat and its and my limitations.

I did a couple of seasons racing on Raven 26 more years ago than I care to remember - what fun we had!

Cheers and welcome to the forum
