'Rahia' has had only three owners from new and appears to be in very good original condition. Her first owner purchased her for his retirement and sailed her lightly in the West Country before selling her in 1993.
During her second ownership she moved to the East coast and has been here ever since, being lightly sailed by both the second and current owner and wintering ashore each year.
