Re: 2018 events

Ian, if you wanted to steer Agamemnon for this you'd be welcome! Hmmm, now there's a tempting idea and I would love the chance to sail "Aggie" sometime. Are you thinking of crewing or do I need to see if Lyndon would be up for it? Two Moth sailors in a classic 14...what could possibly go wrong? Ian

Re: 2018 events

David, Unfortunately I do not own any Proctor designed boats, however, if you need someone to steer something like a Typhoon for example, while you take pictures, then give me a shout! I would quite like the opportunity to take part in this event, if it comes off, as the first boat I ever sailed was...

Re: Banbury

Thanks again to Tim, Pat and all at Banbury Sailing Club who helped make it another splendid day both on and off the water. Great to see a good variety of boats and it was nice that Ian and Matt came along even though they forgot to bring a boat! Sorry we couldn't stay for the quiz this time, but ho...

Re: Merlin Rocket 1028

Hi Sam, According to the Merlin Rocket Yearbook 1028 is Proctor mk 12 called "Arthur" which was built by Wyche and Coppock in 1960. Another example is 2040 which has been beautifully restored by Laurie Smart and appears regularly on the Thames circuit gaining good results, but it has been "carbonise...

Re: Polo shirts

Hi Nessa, Wendy and I would probably like one each so once you get the details from the supplier we can choose colours and sizes.

Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

A big thank you to Hykeham Sailing Club and Sam Mason in particular for organising the first CVRDA event in Lincolnshire and being the perfect host on Saturday evening together with Steve Sallis who also did a great job as Race Officer and part-time fish rescuer! It's a shame that for one reason or ...

Re: Meeting at Hykeham (Again)

Hi Sam,

Are dogs welcome and will there be space for our motorhome?
Format sounds fine and we are always up for a BBQ.

Re: Picnic race

Hi Keith,
Wendy and I will be there in the Motorhome with Baxter and would like to arrive on Sunday morning with a view to joining in with the club racing if that's ok.
Our preference would be for the BYO BBQ.

Cheers

Re: Enterprise lack of pointing

Sitting too far aft certainly wouldn't help your pointing so that may well be at least part of the problem. Most boats go better upwind with the crew weight a bit further forward particularly in lighter winds, in fact the Enterprise generally prefers the weight forward both upwind and down until you...

Re: Baltic Wharf NEXT SATURDAY

As there have been no positive responses to this post or the similar plea on the Facebook page, asking who is intending to go to the Baltic Wharf event, have we reached the point where a decision needs to made? Maybe we should tell the club now that regrettably, due to the low number of people able ...

Re: Merlin design 20WCa

1855 is listed in the Merlin Rocket yearbook as 20aWC which is code for Mike Nokes designed StarRocket built as you say by Wyche and Coppock. A sister ship called Cotopaxi won the Nationals in1965 in the hands of Alan Warren and Barry Dunning so quite fast in it's day, although most boats this pairi...

Re: Merlin 3270

Hi,
According to the yearbook 3270 is an NSM2 built by Guy Winder in 1982. She is called "Dragon Lady".
I think that you only place that you can see the list is in the Merlin Rocket Year Book.

Well Sam I heard a rumour that you were putting an RS400 assymetric kite on the Albacore so I thought I'd better give it a go! Just need a miniature crew to do the hoists and drops and put the pole on now?

Hi,
If Godfrey doesn't want both spinnakers then I would quite like the other one.
Thanks
