Topic : Nautilus Inland Championships

Please come join in the Merlin Rocket Nautilus Yachting Inland Championships at Bala Sailing Club on 25th and 26th September 2021. There will be five races over two days and when the class last visited in 2005 Mike and Jane Calvert won… will they take home the Golden Touch Trophy in 2021?
In additional to the overall prizes, there will be prizes across the fleet for the top three boats silver and bronze fleet sailors, as well as those related by birth, marriage or civil partnership, the first U21 helm, the first over 50 helm, and the first boat with both helm and crew over 60. Plus, there is a team prize so come with friends and bring three boats from your club!
“A huge thank you to Nautilus Yachting for continuing their support of our Merlin Rocket Inlands,” comment Louise Johnson Sponsorship and Publicity for the M.R.O.A. “As a class we are very fortunate to have some long-term sponsors and we are really appreciative of all they do for the class and our members.”
Craftinsure Silver Tiller Organiser and co-ordinator of all Merlin Rocket events Caroline Croft has organised a grand finale to 2021. From now until 4th December there is a Merlin Rocket Silver Tiller, Thames Series, Midland Circuit or the Inland Championships every weekend (except the 30th/31st October if we are going to get pernickety), so plenty of opportunities to get out on the water and meet with friends as the nights draw in.
All fixtures can be found on the new Merlin Rocket Website under Racing – Events. Please enter the Nautilus Yachting Inland Championships on the following link, where you can find the NOR and order your evening BBQ tickets -

I asked Mike about arriving Friday, heres his reply, very useful.

Hi Peter,

Great to hear your coming for the Merlin Inlands, fingers crossed the
welsh weather is good to us!

Your fine to drop the boat at the club. The Barrier will be open until
4.30pm at least. We have a public Café running from the club so its
open until they close. If you end up at the club until the evening
please let me know and I can give the Gate Code so you can get out.

See you at the weekend

If your still trying to enter the inlands and struggling to enter on line it is really very easy you just need to remember your original website username and password it really is that simple!

If you cant then email [email protected] to let me know and I will do my very best to to set you a new username and password but please bear in mind I am at work Wednesday, Thursday & Friday including a couple of 0400 hours starts so you are very unlikely to get much joy on Friday afternoon as I will be even more of a dribbling heap in the corner than normal!

Oh and where GoCardless says set up direct debit it really dosent me it it, it will just take a one off payment so please dont be put off using it and we promise to get it sorted for next time!


Good Night
