Topic : Everyone wants to sail a merlin

Hi all,

the captain of Southampton university mens team Ben (Anisworth) would like to sail a merlin at the BUSA fleet racing champs this weekend (@Weymouth). He's a great sailor with a good chance of winning, would anyone have a boat he could borrow? Would be good for the fleet for someone to win in a merlin :)

I'm sure he would like to do it in a Merlin!! Tell him to get a job then he might be able to afford one.... Honestly, students these days.

What happened to the Larks of the 70's? clapped out boats at Manchester in '76 BUSA if I recall correctly, too many collisions to risk a Merlin.

Got a guy from medical school doing it with me.  Should be good fun I hope!  Got the car sorted too, thanks Fran.

old busarian, they are talking about the fleet racing event, that is a little softer on the boats than team racing.

Last year Portsmouth sported two Merlin's and achieved a 4th and 9th, both boats from my stable so to speak.

Manchester still have Larks, relatively new ones but still clapped out enough to be the worst buoyancy test failures at the Nationals. Despite copious amaounts of sealant we must have tested them at least a dozen times!!
