Sorry, we have no details for any more events this year!
Training is an important part of the Association's activities. There is an annual long weekend event which has been held at Rutland for several years. For the 2013 event please read the information and programme and then fill in an entry form
On a more irregular basis, there are individual Club based day programmes, often before a Silver Tiller event to attract visiting boats. The Association maintains a team of RYA qualified coaches and can provide advice to competitors and organisers alike.
We may be able to provide an experienced coach to lead the day, waterproof video camera, handouts and other equipment.
There are several guides and other resources available on the website. You can
download copies of the fact sheets and various other guides covering a range of Merlin specific matters.
The Coaching Team
It is one of the Association's objectives to encourage more training and coaching, and a key element of this is to maintain a strong training team. Many of them are formally RYA qualified and others are just highly experienced Merlin Rocketeers!
Although we have been most fortunate to receive a great deal of help in running our various class training events, many of the helpers are not qualified either in coaching skills or even in many cases as powerboat skippers. Furthermore the demand for local race training at club level has traditionally outstripped the Association's resources.
