Looking like a good event this year with B14s, Phantoms and of course you guys in the Merlins...

Tony, you seem somewhat embarrased about this - I have got to ask which Jane at Starcross you were thinking about????  ;)

Looks like there will be a good turn out from the local fleet, so who else will be there?

Link to Starcross Steamer results below.  The Merlins were the biggest fleet with 16 starters.  As forecast, the wind was fairly light but just enough for some good racing - phew!  Taxi and Tom Pygall finished 2nd overall with Dickie Dee and Chris Gould also going very well to finish 3rd.  Commiserations to Matt Biggs who suffered gear failure whilst in the lead and then had to retire.  Full report to follow.

Hi Alan

I don't know but will ask the OOD. However, the Steamer is a pursuit race and the Merlins all started on the same gun, so it probably makes no difference.

Well done Dicky Dee. Great result!!! Lets have a quick race report then. 

I pootled down to the mighty Island Barn yesterday for a peek and seems like it could be nice Londinium Village racing over the winter. Any more merlins fancy a slice of the action?
