Merlin footage from 1992
http://www.malcolmdonald.com/HPG0102000ArchiveIndex01.htm go here then look down towards the bottom for some cool merlin footage!
Cool, that's my boat in there!!!!!!
And my boat ! 3374 I wish i could go that fast !!
Funny how the helms change but the boats stay the same. We were thrashing it out with Whyte Mischief a couple of weeks ago at Blithfield.
Midland Circuit Chap
Pretty good stuff.
Well one of them just won the champs again......
BTW it's from 1990 not 1992, COTLB won the champs that year and was sold (reference commentary) and PK had sold the white whale by 1992
Apologies for getting the date wrong! It said 1992 on the website!
Fantastic sailing footage Whyte Mischief was and still is a brilliant boat very very fast off wind.
What was Mike Calvert sailing
3317 shared affair.
only the first 10 seconds worth looking at "there goes the leader"
Its Friday, the office is dull. Search google video for sailing....
Or try IFILM, if you can bear to keep skipping the adverts.
hi, did any of you download the video footage/have it still? as i now own 3317!
And the same rig on the Gurns boat achieved 3rd in the windy race at Poole in I believe 96. Great day's sailing beating COLB and Gangster over the water. Should have seen Dick Batt's Face when we arrived ashore with one of his old style rigs having just beaten Nick/Graham with his latest kit. Just recovering from an 18 month back injury and that race is what got me to build Moondance Assassin. Think the teams work the boats harder these days!!!
Petere, try here, it might be available.
thanks, awesome video! does anyone have any other pictures or videos of 3317 shared affair? i know that 3317 was owned by Mike Calvert and won the 1990 inland championships does anyone have any pictures or videos of that?
That's a pretty quick spinnaker hoist 25 seconds into the Youtube video!
smaller kites and shorter poles??
Jeez I miss my old boat.
sadly the first 10 seconds of this video have dissapeared
that should say "passed to Pat Blake" otherwise a very uncomfortable business
