It's started ...
 
Classes trying to get a bit of PR by claiming the sailors as their own ...
 
 
Seems the GPs and Merlins are scrabbling over the same chap ...
 
Lets face it, people at this level have no doubt been through many classes ... they are sailors, they are not the produce of any one class.

Forget the TeamGB machine ... it's all down to the Merlin Class; producing Olympic winners. Confused

For once the claims would appear true! Pretty down to earth, really, and just enjoys sailing dinghies, from all I've heard.

Oh for heaven's sake. This upsets you because? What's exactly wrong with people identifying someone as a past or present member of their community?

Its the hype that's rather entertaining. Like the Merlin's claiming the turnout is a who's who of dinghy sailors. Arrant nonsense of course. For a start how many of the Olmpic team are there? One? Not much of a who's who is it...

Where exactly are they claiming that? Not in the piece quoted by the OP.

Yep, that's what I thought the OP was offering a smirk at.
