Whilst reseaching family history and looking for old photos . I have come across  photos of Merlins at Ranelagh, Tamesis, Littlehampton and I think Rye , I guess they are around 1960. There are pictures of very young Brian Southcott, Brian Saffery Cooper, Robert Harris, Beri Ritchie and Alan Warren, I think these were all at Putney. They are not great pictures but if anybody is interested I will email them over. Happy Days playing with Merlins, Francis Boff

Difficult to believe that any of those named were ever young so I would like to see the pictures ! [email protected]

Could I put them on the Ranelagh pages with the other old photos there?
Thanks, Nick

Hi Francis,
Very many thanks for those, many of which are now up on Ranelagh web pages. If anyone can identify various helms/boats, please let me know.

Top row 3rd from left - Anthony brook ?
Middle 1st left - Alan Warren ?
Middle 2nd from left - Bury Ritchie ?
Bottom 3rd from left - Robin Fowler ?
Bottom 5th from left Brian Southcott ?

A real trip down memory lane, I am sure the previous poster is correct, the other two I can identify are Brian Saffery-Cooper and Daphne Ward sailing together and a very suave looking Derek King.

Fantastic pictures,Francis.  Is that you in the duffle coat?
Now we can see why we have to have bilge keels on our boats!

Is the middle row R end a rather blurry Mervyn Allen?  2nd from L could be John Stokes

The two photos you refer to are Berry Ritchie in the glasses crewed by Carol and Brian Saffery-Cooper crewed by Daphne Ward
