Owner's Remarks :She is in that class of solid Scandinavian built yachts that find their way safely and comfortably to all corners of the globe. Her rig, with everything brought back for easy and safe short handed sailing, is strongly engineered and includes a double spreader deck stepped mast with in boom mainsail furling system, backstay tensioner and a spinnaker pole. She has high topsides with a deep, dry and safe cockpit, angled cockpit sole at the helm, a curved helmsman's seat above a full depth lazarette and comfortable seating for four, a deep locker to port fitted for storage and deep flat topped coamings with cave lockers. Under sail, she will turn in a respectable 6 kts on the wind in a force four and comfortably tack through just under 90 degrees - cruising in the Netherlands in 2002 we topped out at 9 kts in a force six on a beam reach! Rinia's keel is a fin and bulb configuration and with her balanced rudder, she tracks well and is very controllable under sail. Under power she will turn in just over her own length, go astern accurately and stop and accelerate predictably and quickly. Her well designed, well finished and comfortable accommodation has served and cared for us well in all weather and sea conditions we have experienced from the Baltic, through the Channel, across the Adriatic and to and across the Aegian - we could not have asked for more ! Cruising Summary :* Rinia has been the fulfilment of a lifelong interest in sailing and cruising. She was 'conceived' over dinner and a glass or two of fine Greek wine when at anchor on a charter yacht in Ormos Misou on the island of Rinia in the Greek Cyclades near Delos and Mykonos.* We saw a sister Nordship and met the designer, Lars Buchwald at the Southampton Boat Show in September 2001, drove home to collect a cheque book before any second thoughts could creep in and commissioned the build...all on day one at the show !* Rinia was launched in Kolding on the East coast of Denmark and we set sail on the 5th of May 2002 on her maiden voyage to her then home port of Poole, via the Baltic, the Keil Canal, the Friesian Islands, the Dutch canal system, the Ijsselmeer, Ijmuiden, Calais, Dover, Eastbourne, Brighton, Gosport and Cowes.* Despite a 'Typically British Weather Welcome' to Dover ( force 7 against a fast outgoing tide ) Rinia performed impeccably and brought us all safely home.* Subsequent UK cruising focused on the Solent and the West Country, especially to Weymouth, Salcombe, Dartmouth. Fowey and Falmouth.* In May2006, we shipped Rinia to Croatia and spent 3 years cruising the Dalmatian coast and islands before setting sail again to Greece - Corfu and the Ionian Islands initially..then in May 2010, out via the Corinth Canal to the Cyclades..and of course to Nisos Rinia and Ormos Misou where Vanessa and I shared a well earned bottle of Cair ( Greek sparkling wine ) with Rinia.* The late Summer of 2010 and Spring 2011 have been spent in the Saronic Gulf and the Eastern Peleponese - Aegina, Angistry, Poros, Epidaurus, Hydra, Spetzes, Ermioni, Napoleon, Vathi & Korfos.
