Great sailing at Brightlingsea
The merlins yesterday were joined by Tim Rush and Pete Nicholson (Borrowed Merlin before you ask!) Great sailing with 5 Merlins on the start line, Tim showed us all how to sail a Merlin fast and finished 3rd on handicap behind a B14 and Mirror, the 4 other Merlins finished 4th,5th, 6th and 7th. Over 30 boats were out for the second week running.
Must have been an east coast thing as we too had a fantstic sail in Whitstable - perfect sunshine and wind. Really really close racing and some amazing planing reaches, not to mention the obligatory pints in the bar afterwards, where the racing became even closer and reaches even better!!
Great racing through the Broghtingsea chop and we all had a hard time chasing Tim
A realy good days sailing was had at BSC on sunday in a solid, sunny force 3. Thanks Tim for steering and thanks alot Oz for the boat loan got me hooked. Would it be possible to do it again nearer Christmas? Much beer rewarded for boat loan! Do you reckon winder does a student disount?
Hi Craig, thats very kind of you. Will let you know nearer the date if thats ok. Thanks.
No worries Pete we have it sorted, we know where Graig's boat is. Do we get to have a go with Tim’s sails? Oz and ‘M’ will be ok
