August Bank Holiday Racing for Vintage and Modern
Both vintage and modern Merlins will be welcome at Roadford Lake in Devon over August Bank Holiday weekend August 29th-31st. For the vintage boats it is the 10th anniversary national regatta of the Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association with racing also counting for the DeMay vintage series.
Andy Hay - Enchantment 3386
Might have negotiated a pass for this one - assuming that we survive the Nationals unscathed. So hopefully, Enchantment will be there in the modern category!
There's now nine or ten classic Finns coming. Can the Merlins beat their turnout???
Half Cut will be there even if she has to have more Brightlingsea duct tape to hold her together!
BEWARE... the Brightlingsea version of duct tape only works on salt water....
No it doesn't. I used that blue stuff to mend my watering can 3 years ago and its still more or less holding the water. Terrific stuff but sadly I have finished the reel.
I've never seen duct tape used in Scottish dancing - so a brand new use for it has been uncovered. I suppose it saves you from flying apart in a Dashing White Sergeant!!
Beauregard McTavish of that Ilk
Obviously good stuff, I wonder if it could hold Hamilton House together then?
Works on Shear Water too - disgusting blue green algeaed soup of fishing bait boilies and dog food!
Some very early (true)merlins will be there. I will have no. 6 and I think Garry is hoping to get all the way from Aberdeen with 111. Hope to see some more too.
take him a while in a Merlin :-)
