That's interesting, could you give me a clue on where to find them. I might as well try to join them.
It's the 'Giraff' Yacht Club - they have a Facebook Group http://www.facebook.com/groups/244588652232300/

Unbelievably, the enterprising gentleman who bought 'Fearless' has sailed it already! There are some pictures of her on the water on the page linked to above.

Thank you for the hint, I'll contact them.
The Merlin does look majestic on that narrow lake.
Greetings,

Merlin Rocket 1711 "Fearless" went to a good home all right. The boat along with it's new owner were star of the weekend at Carnac 2014.
The Y&Y report about the event here.
(scroll down to the end of the report to find out about Francois P. and his Merlin)
