The Midland SC Silver Tiller event is only 10 days away, and the Club is ready to give a warm welcome to Merlin sailors from around the country.  The reservoir is full, and the race team, galley and bar are ready to make you feel at home.

There will be the usual 3 races, with the first gun at 11.00 a.m. Directions to the club and other information can be found on www.midlandsailingclub.org.uk. If you require accommodation or have any other query, please contact me and I'll try to help.

This event is also the first of the 2010 Midland Circuit and, the prizegiving for the event will be followed by the Midland Circuit prizegiving for 2009.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

All the merlin sailors at Redditch are looking forward to Midland.

At last count i think there will be 5 merlins coming along.

See you all there.

All those who qualified on the Midland Circuit last year will be able to collect their unique Midland Circuit tops at the Midland Silver Tiller so make sure that you turn up so that I do not have to take them home!

28/03/2010 20:09:03
Thanks Midland a great days sailing.

28/03/2010 20:57:48
Big shifts. Big gusts. Areas of very light breezes. And cracking spot-on courses with beats, reaches, runs and gybes.
And on top of that some very good (as well as great value) food.

For the first time we have raced against other Merlins: THANKS!

29/03/2010 22:56:47

Jon 3566
Yep very wet.....

30/03/2010 08:40:37
Matt Biggs won but not sure on the rest of the results. I think they were having a few difficulties with the software they were using doing things it shouldn't! I am sure they will post them as soon as they can.

30/03/2010 10:56:02
any results yet?

30/03/2010 13:05:44
Would be lovely to know the overall  result please????  Also did anyone get any pics?

30/03/2010 15:28:32
Come on guys give them a break! There is obviously an issue with the results so let them have time to fix it....

30/03/2010 15:30:59
Why can't we have a forum where people have to sign in with an email address, I guess this forum works because anybody can write anything but it would be good to know who asks the questions.

30/03/2010 16:19:48
Looking at some of the e-mail addresses that are linked to people's names above, it would hardly improve things very much!

All that an identity for a forum does is to prove that it is the same person who posted before. It does not give any guarantee about who that person is in the first place.

Some use boat numbers, some use boat names, some use crew names, some use boat names from 3 or 4 boats previously! And any of these only help newcomers if they go along to an Open / Nationals where the people are sailing their own boats.

Hi Jon.  Your gear is in the kitchen at the Club.  Racing starts at 1.30 p.m. so there will be someone in the kitchen at that time.  I may not be there, but June Anslow or Heather should be able to help you.  Regards.

Mike Anslow
