Giving him a novice crew works quite well!

We'd like to sleep over in the van in the club car park again if that's OK. Will the outside loo be open overnight?

Chris recommended it for the Merlin - you can buy it in the camping shop in Trowbridge (BCH in Islington up by the Shaw Trust garden centre) or Cordens in Warminster

If you are at Frensham, talk to Sandy at the weekend as he has some good spare parts. On the old lasers there was a metal cap for the top of the mast onto which the sail threaded. Does anyone have one we could acquire? We have a brand new radial sail with no cap. I could probably stitch webbing on b...

We didn't do Plymouth this year because we've only just bought the Merlin and want to get it all up together and get some practice before any events, particularly sea, as we are currently so reliant on the rescue boat if we capsize - bigger buoyancy bags are being ordered! Next year we are much more...

Personally we aren't bothered about the prizes, just looking forward to having a good race on a big lake with some decent winds and lots of good beer, food and company!
Looks like there will be a large flock of migrating Shearwaters there!

Hear hear! Great fun. Roger falling out the back of the jeep ws a sight not to be missed!! The Merlin twice came up like a submarine - completely under water apart from foredeck and mast and totaly un-manoevreable! We sat there with visions of Chris's pride and joy going down beneath us!!

Tempting, especially with the children away! Presumably the hamdicap is open to any age boat?
