Re: Clywedog Rally 2021

Hallo Keith, Very sorry to say that we will not be coming this year. Lois has not been well but seems to be getting better slowly ( not COVID by the way) but since it is Amy’s wedding the following weekend we want to be 100% …if poss. I think it may be only the second or third time we have missed co...

Very early merlin no 68

FREE Merlin 68 Joy is looking for a new home. Once a well known and successful boat and the Top MastTrophy of the Merlin Rocket Class was made from the top of the original mast from this boat when the rules changed in 1949 to reduce the rig height. Has been dry stored for many years but needs some w...

Re: Int 14 #243 photo link - ‘as is’

I agree, Jim. I only made a vague connection but it seems to have been taken as confirmed and I would not go that far. It would be good to see for comparison if any of the other made-in-Malta boats can be seen. If they seem to be very similar that certainly would support your comment. But if they ar...

Re: Int 14 #243

I only suggested 243 as a possibility rather than belief! See my comment in the other thread as I hadn’t realised there were two threads on this.

Re: Int 14 #243 photo link - ‘as is’

Re: Int 14 #243 photo link - ‘as is’

I was asked for any thoughts on this boat and seeing the Malta boat builders plaque I went through the list from this boat builder. Most are down as designed and build by Vella but the first one is recorded as designed by Morgan Giles and a few features on these photos seemed a bit MGish to me namel...

Re: Events 2021

Certainly looking forward to attending some events...hopefully. I can’t host an event but if all goes to plan there are a couple of vintage sailing events around here (deepest west wales) I can tell you about later. These may not be racing as such but do say if you could be tempted to make the journ...

Re: Does the FB Group support the CVRDA Mission?

Yes the pros and cons mentioned above I agree with. Certainly the forum is not what it used to be but FB does support the CVRDA mission but in a different way now. I, personally, don’t ‘get’ Facebook and don’t sign up to friends and other pages, I dislike so much of it that I sign out of it for week...
