Tamesis Club is delighted that David Henshall is coming to give the talk at our Thursday evening club supper and talk on 5 January 2017 and will talk about 70 years of the Merlin Rocket.
David ‘Dougal’ Henshall needs no introduction to the Merlin class and we are very pleased that we are able to host what will be an illustrated stroll through the 70 odd years of the Merlin Rocket. Whilst very Merlin centric, the talk will also highlight how social and technical changes, often trialled in the class, ended up driving development through the whole of the sport of dinghy racing.
We gather at 7.30 for supper at 8 and the talk usually starts at around 9 and with questions lasts about an hour. Supper is £10 per person. The bar will be open from 7.30.
We welcome anyone who might be interested to see and hear David, but would be grateful if you could let us know if you are coming so that we can cater accordingly, either signing up in the clubhouse or emailing Nicky Johnson at [email protected] . We have space for around 80 people.
