This may be old news by now!!. I pre ordered the book with Amazon back in June but they now tell me that they are unable to supply it after all. I believe that it is available direct from NZ but costs more but still looking for a UK supplier. ???

After getting 2 messages from Amazon delaying the issue date I ordered it from NZ. Turned up in 5 days. Looks a good book, complete with plan, transfers and sail number. Author is receptive to emails and responds quickly. Cost a little more from NZ but at least you get it.  O0

I've just ordered the book through Amazon marketplace in the uk for 7 quid it's depatched already for anyone who's interested!

Let me know if anyone's building one at the moment!

I built the racing sparrow from the drawing that came with the book. A real nice boat to build and it sails well.
As the boat tends to dive in very fresh winds I moved the keel back 10mm and angled the lead bulb up a couple of degrees.
