Merlin Rocket National Championship

It’s back! The Merlin Rocket Owners Association in conjunction with Magic Marine are giving one lucky pair the chance to take part in the Aspire National Championship, hosted by Looe Sailing Club from 17th to 23rd August 2019.

The Merlin Rocket Owners Association boat, 3582, is available for one helm and crew to borrow, both need to be under 25 on the opening day of the National Championship. Magic Marine will supply both helm and crew with new sailing and shore kit, a bundle worth over £500!

Here’s what last year’s winner Tom Daniels had to say, “Joining the Merlin Fleet in Lyme was such a great week and I couldn’t recommend the experience enough. The fleet couldn’t have been more welcoming, and the sailing was epic. The kit prize was equally superb, and we were very grateful to Magic Marine for fitting us out for the week.”

The event looks to have minimum of 60 boats, in a nine-race series over six days off the stunning Cornish coast. Help will be on hand, so you can get to grips with the boat. If we have your attention, here is how to enter.
