Topic : RYA Dinghy show 2010.

This years dinghy show was very well attended,and the high standard of exhibitors displays definitely made the trip to Alexandra Palace worthwhile. The Merlin Rocket stand was a constant hive of activity, attracting even more attention than Jamie's A Rater! Aside from our current national champion and many other sailing luminaries, we had visitors from the USA and Sweden who are returning to arrange test sails (I kid you not) as well as new members of the fleet (hello Brightlingsea!). It was a pleasure to see another sparkling Merlin on the Speed sails Stand,in full effect for 2010!
As always, it was the people who volunteered their boats, time, etc for the love of the class which brought the stand to life and a big thank you goes to:

Andy & Caroline Hay
Dave & Celia charlton
For the loan of their boats, and not minding everyone pulling their strings around for 2 days
Mr & Mrs Deacon
Kieron & son
Richard Battey
Andy Marlow & the gorgeous Pippa Taylor
Dan the man Alsop
Chairman Alex (where were you when we packed up?)
Ben & Chris "Team Pleasure"
Andrew Mills & Peter Ellam
Dave Winder who put in alot of time and effort, as well as the sailmakers who support our class; Goacher Sails, Pinnel& Bax and Hydes Sails.
What a good weekend.
