Mervyn Allen has asked Berry Ritchie and me to write about the early Merlins and the people who sailed them. We hope it will also be a design guide for prospective vintage owners. I want to cover the period from 1946 to about 1963 so please let know if you are able to provide any stories or photos of those early years. My telephone number is 01628 529658.

Alan Warren would be a good contact. Started sailing them in 1952/3. His dad also sailed them pretty much from the off as was a founding member of Shoreham SC in 1947 I believe.
