I am new to the forum & have been sailing rc yachts for about 18 months, although I have been involved in powered rc boats for over 40 years. I fancied owning a yacht for a while & last June bought an old Marblehead from a well known auction site. My only regret is I didnt do it 30 years earlier!! Simply love sailing & haven’t even touched a powered boat since. My second purchase was an Oliver Lee designed 1.5 metre yacht, which, up until last week, was my favourite boat to sail.
Last week I finished building a Razor 3 footie, which got its first sail last saturday in winds of around 25 mph, & although I had the Marblehead with me, I only sailed it for around 10 mins, the rest of the 6 hours was spent sailing the footie. I havent laughed so much in years!
