Y&Y features merlins again
Page 78 covers the Glyn Charles pursuit race, and most of the text is from Willie Warrens report. And is that the photogenic Ellie I see enjoying herself in the main photo?
Still think the Easy Rider photo is the best one though!! Good report and coverage of the Merlins.
I dont like it! Why do they always choose the bad photos!!! and why me!
There were lots of photos taken that day, but that one was one of the few with someone smiling, instead of grimacing!!
Latest issue has an interview with Phil King in - cunning work there Rachel!
Thoroughly deserved and long overdue recognition for one of the countrys best dinghy sailors over the last 25 years plus. Top fella. Nice work Rach!
The leading 470 on the cover this month is helmed by one of the HLSC super youth, Jonny McGovern.
How did they get it so clean for that photo - its gleaming!
Feb 8 issue out tomorrow, and you will see Merlins on the inside back page - a classic shot you may have seen before.
HI all, thanks for the recognitions of the Phil King Article I wrote last year, this time I'm focussing on another Merlin Rocket Legend - Alan Warren. Long overdue recognition I feel.
You could always take a straw poll on the forum about who has had to take avoiding action on a port-biased line or a windward mark, not wishing to cast nasturtiums
Ask him about his boat burning exploits !
parking boat under eifel tower and leaving for 3 days as seemed a 'convenient place to leave it'
Ask him about his church burning exploits...
Thanks to everyone who's emailed... its great to have some stories to chat to Alan about when he's next in the country.
"wife of two fanatical sailors"....YandY 8th Feb.
I once heard a good one about a sea burial in the 60's that went a bit wrong.
Ah Yes! Jeckyll mainsails.
It's in the Library of this site.
There was a story in one of the Merlin mags about having to take a crowbar to the hearse to remove the body of an alderman after a minor shunt on the way to the crematorium
How about asking Mr Dunning for a few anecdotes?
Thanks, I'm waiting to hear back from Barry - I'm pretty sure he's cooking up something special for me! ;-)
I've had to edit this from Jacko....hope it makes sense.
Merlin Rockets feature in the Y&Y magazine yet again!
Calling Peter Thompson of 3114....I believe you may have good reason to purchase a copy of Y&Y on Friday when it hits the shelves!!!!!!
So, when was the 'photo of 3114 taken Mags? (Very good by the way)
Salcombe Yacht Club Regatta 2008 is 10th-15th August, not 5th-10th as YandY 18/4.
The photo might have been from 2005? I wasn't involved in the choice!
Yes the photo was from a few years a go. Apologies about the Salcombe YC regatta date.
This issue (out yesterday) has the Salcombe report in.
The 'Racing Classes Guide' supplement is free with Y&Y tomorrow (Thursday 13th Nov) and Andy Dalby has managed to sneak in again - see p31 where the General Lee leaps off a Shoreham wave.
Oooh Lovely Jubley!
Got an early copy at the airport this morning, the new format of Y&Y really is very good, more readable and a lot less repetative.
Page 65 of the issue on sale today shows Dan and Jennie hiking hard, full of concentration!
"104 years since the last Olympics in UK waters to be precise".
Let's be charitable and call it a typo, though it will be 104 years from 1908 I am pretty sure nay certain since 1948 - (That is 74 years!)- when London hosted the Olympics and Torquay the Olympic sailing, when a 18 year old Paul Elvestrom won the first his four Gold Medals, and our (UK's) own Stewart Morris his Gold Medal in the Swallow Class.
It was anonymous. Perhaps the editor?
PS. I think it is 64 years (precisely)to 2012 that is.
