Stepping Stone was our first little trailer sailor. It was a 24′ Rob Legg. Fast and flighty, we started to learn what this sailing was all about sailing around islands off the North Channel around Gladstone Harbour, Curtis and Rat Island. We washed in a bucket, cooked on a metho stove and ate on the one internal step which served as a table. It was a bit too squishy and uncomfortable.
Sanctuary Cove Boat Show was the next stop. After the best prawns and a few glasses of red for lunch we walked away with a signed contract for a Beneteau 43. Stepping Stone was up for sale!
