Roger has been in touch with me about a talk he is giving about MingMing II at Burham on Crouch which he thought might be of interest to east coast Achilles owners. Having heard the talk he gave to the Achilles Owners at Mumbles YC in June I can thoroughly recommend this.

Public Talk at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Burnham-on-Crouch
Saturday 1st February: 12pm
THE MAKING OF MINGMING II:
Creating a Pocket Ocean Cruiser


Singlehanded sailor, boatbuilder and author Roger Taylor has been ocean sailing for over 45 years. He built his first ocean-going yacht in his early twenties. In this talk, illustrated with superb slides and video footage, he describes the creation of his latest yacht Mingming II. The talk goes right back to Roger’s formative years as a sailor and boatbuilder, and describes the development of his ideas on the construction of safe, easily handled and inexpensive cruisers. It follows in detail the concepts behind Mingming II, her design and physical creation, and assesses her sailing performance.

There's a good article on Ming Ming 2 in the March Yachting Monthly. She certainly goes well on a reach. Ingenious use of a lamp-post for a mast!
