A really excellent illustrated talk from Roger about the development of his ideas for his Ming Ming boats. Do look out for the Yachting Monthly online film on their site of her sailing and an interview. Roger believed it would be put up quite soon. There is no doubt the boat still sails impressively well despite all the things he has done to it like taking a saw to the cockpit and the mast from a lamp post! It is a hugely impressive rebuild and re design for approx. £6000 in total.

Most of all ,what a pleasure to meet other Achilles owners at long last !

Hi Bob, I'd second that. It was a good day out and the CYC made us very welcome. Roger's presentation was excellent although I can never see myself going down the Junk rigged route!

It was good to meet up with you and David and talk Achilles 24's.

Oops! It's the RCYC....thought I'd better get that in before they send the boys round!
