Just bought a new Merlin from winder Boats and looking for some training events in the summer, does any one know who I should talk to. Only ever sailed a Mirror with the kids and an RS200 with the wife and feel training may be required!!

Dan Alsop is the training guru. There is an excellent 3-day event at Rutland which people learn a vast deal from, plus (sometimes) some club-run events too.

There will be training run by Pat and Jilly Blake at Cookham on the day before the open meeting (28th April), followed by a big party!!

There'll be a bunch of us in Brightlingsea for the Classic and Vintage/Merlin Vintage joint event on Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend. Great sailing there - the Silver Tiller crowds would enjoy it.

You have to watch these Mirror people. Sailed against one at Hayling last year who was also new to Merlins. Seem to do OK. Probably G'd by his crew tho.
