Calling all Scottish Merlins
If you need a kite i can let you borrow my St George's kite as long as you are carefull with it .
Saltire! surely you chaps don't need lessons from an Irishman from south of the border?

Hi Scott, welcome back, I am still sailing the Merlin, just not very often due to work and looking after my kids, the Scottish scene has been quiet due to Hamish defecting to a Europe and my lack of time but I would love to get some events organised. The spinnaker met a sad death earlier this year when my crew (not John) did something new with the pole in a gybe (goodbye carbon pole) and the spinnaker gained a 4 foot hole (oops!) but is due to be replaced (thanks mr insurance man) e mail me [email protected]
I am still sailing Gannet (252) and Secret Water (111) at Forfar and at Vintage events. Just back from the CVRDA Nationals at Clywedog where the Merlins put in a good show. Gannet at 59 years old was 7th in a fleet of 24 boats over the weekend. I am sure that 3072 is still at Chanonry and that Neil will be sailing his boat at Holy Loch. What is the punishment for Hamish for defection I wonder?
good to hear from you all, I'm looking for a MSM2 as a winter project, trying to build up a decent club racer for the spring. i'll keep intouch,
What Garry hasnt told you is he is about to defect to Somerset and has been seen practising his zummzet accent in local pubs down here so he can fit in.
