Our next BVI adventure begins in:
S/V Ripple, a Beneteau, Oceanis 373, is a 37′ sloop rigged sailboat, built in 2006 and sailed on Lake Travis all of her life.
Ripple is an ocean ready sailing vessel (S/V) equipped with:
All required safety equipment including 17 life vests (12 adult, 3 youth, 2 child) – children under 13 years of age must wear life preservers at all times when underway
A full galley (two burner stove, oven, sink, refrigerator, and freezer)
Indoor and outdoor showers
104 gallons of hot and cold potable running water
Propane BBQ grill
Air conditioning and heating at the dock
A head (that’s sailor talk for a bathroom!)
Roller furling sails for easy handling.
With ample decks she can handle four passengers with ease, up to six passengers a bit cozily.
Aboard Ripple, you are welcome to kick back, relax, and simply enjoy the beauty that is sailing a Beneteau on Lake Travis, flame a few burgers on the grill, “go jump in the lake” for a refreshing swim, or just doze in the sun on deck or shaded in the cockpit seating. You can also choose to actively participate in the sailing experience at whatever your comfort level may be. With beginners and experts alike, I am happy to share sailing and lake knowledge, and I enjoy being taught as much as I do teaching… there is always something new to learn from the water and from boats!
