Try
http://www.sailuk.org/news.php
I think the micro magic will be the boat of the next few years, large fleets are allready sailing on the continent, it is a very good seaboat especially for its size, upgrades are available without costing a fortune, and the rules allow a certain amount of tuning again with out extotionate costs.
