This book is truly a masterpiece - 350 A4 size pages of beautifully researched and illustrated history of a dinghy class which has been at the forefront of design and innovation in the British dinghy sailing scene for the last 70 years. This epic work will further enhance the standing of the class and is a 'must buy' for those thousands of people who have sailed these dinghies over the years. The publishers, Troubador Publishing Ltd, are to be complimented on the excellent publishing quality - this truly is a book to buy, read and cherish.

I, and many others, have assisted Dougal in his work. My main contribution was to provide him with 18 sets of line drawings for some of the more significant Merlin Rocket designs.
