The boat launched on the right is Mizpah, looks like a young Brian Kynoch holding her steady whilst Dan gets her ready for the off. Merlin Rocket in main picture looks like Skidbladnir sailed by Leslie Tait. His first Merlin was Njord, the next was Skadi followed by Skidbladnir. Although person at stern has a beard not sure if it is Leslie?

Almost certain that the gentleman sitting in the boathouse on a fish box is the very same Bill Mainland former owner of the Girl Wilma. See picture #9938
