Here we go round the blog circuit again.
Max of Bursledon Blog has posted about some local skiffs and suggested that we might have something similar at the Ancient & Vulnerable St Deny's Sailing and Rowing Club and indeed we do.
This is none other than Chris Partridge of Rowing For Pleasure trying out Merlin.
Merlin is our oldest boat and is well over 100 years old. She was indeed built by Dyers boatyard just down stream of the club.
Below is Alan Blandford, left who is almost as old as Merlin giving her a spruce up aided by Reg.
