Hello - I'm new to owning an Achilles 24. Took ownership today. I've already been encouraged by some of the posts and photos here, so I am looking forward to getting my teeth in. Maybe someone here knows the boat - it's called Artemis and until recently was in North Wales.

NormanKlipspringer:

yep, that's the one. I think Andrew sold it to the person I part-exchanged with. I know nothing about it. Seems to float though - so at least halfway there! :-)

If there any known problems with it, please share!

Thanks to all and everyone else for the warm welcome. Looking forward to getting stuck in.

Snifter534:

she was brought to London just before Christmas and is currently in St Katherines where she will stay til April. Then I will move her down river to Erith and she might stay there or end up on the Medway or the Crouch. It depends if I fall in love with her...which others have told me i will :-)

Welcome to the forum. I keep my Achilles, Aeolus, at Greenwich Yacht Club where I take part in the regular monthly cruiser races. I know Erith YC well and its a super place. You should look at both Greenwich and Erith YCs - the Thames is a good place for an Achilles!
