So, CHEW VALLEY'S VISITOR'S DAY is on the 26th of October .
In addition to the general Invitation, please see below, this year the Invitation is particularly directed to anyone owning a Merlin Rocket of Any Age or Competitiveness to encourage them to come along to a Gathering of Merlins on the 26th, to admire each other's boats, race, and enjoy some good food and beer, the latter not included in the five quid entry fee !! Boats and owners may pitch up to rig and sail on the Saturday if they wish. Handicapping for a hoped for seventy year range of boats will present a challenge so advance notice of attending boats' age, design, rig spec. etc. would be of great assistance. This is a personal initiative on my part so please direct any Merlin related questions and boats' RSVPs to me and any other event related queries to Nick Fisher. My email is [email protected] And mobile 07785 255990, home number 01225 463468.
Any assistance to publicising this event will be greatly appreciated..
Best Regards
Rick Knapp
