Hi;

My sons and I cleaned up in the "3 people in a 2 person boat" category in February this year... in our Lark, Sail No 381. An orriginal Jb lark with a good racing setup, Good sails except for the tired spinnaker. And some old Suggit Sails which are probably more in the spirit of the CVRDA. We are trying to sell this - asking £ 499 or £ 600 with a combi Trailer - so that we can buy a vintage boat e.g. Albacore, Flying Fifteen (or some other boat wiht a high boom clearance and decent performance so that I can sail with Jane (who has an inflexible back).

Interested in suggestions for an exciting yet easy to crew class...

Thanks;

john./[:p]

Merlins have plenty of space under the boom but they'll keep you on your toes too. (I just happen to have Merlin 2121 for sale if you're interested...so my above comments are completely unbiased of course) Strictly speaking 2121 is still a classic (or is it OLD?)(built 1968) as it's not a fully ribbed/rivetted hull but the same applies to Albacores flying fifteens and nearly any boat after 1950 except some of the coastal boats such as Tideways etc.
If that's the sort of thing you are looking for there's a Redwing on ebay now (lying at Saltford just west of Bath) if your up for a bit of redecking. Well worth a look.
