News / Our new website


Welcome to our all new and improved Merlin Rocket Owners Association Website. We have spent the last few months developing a new website offering our members that little bit more, we are pleased with the results and hope you like it too!

The fun features

We now have a designated ‘Members Area’. When logged into the website, as a Full Member or an Associate Member of the M.R.O.A. you have access to a whole host of new features and treats including:

  1. Archive of all class magazines currently going back to 2005
  2. Archive of class yearbooks currently going back to 2006
  3. Members benefits with discount codes from sponsors of the class
  4. Ability to book and pay for class training online
  5. Access to AGM content
  6. Ability to post on our fancy new forum

The admin bit

  1. If you had a login on our previous website that will work on this new site.
  2. If you have a login and you are a paid-up member of the class association (Full or Associate) all the fancy new features will appear.
  3. If you are a paid-up member of the association but do not have a login you will need to create one to make the most of the new website. Go to ‘Join Now’, complete the form but do not complete the payment section. Your application will be reviewed and once confirmed (this is done manually so please be patient) you will have access to all areas.
  4. If you are not a member and would like to join you can do so via the ‘Join Now’ section and complete the process including the payment and your membership will go through to Martin who looks after our membership.


The Forum is currently read only unless you are logged in as a member, this is something we are addressing, but one step at a time! In the meantime, we are aware that we often get news of marriages, births and deaths of Merlin Rocket Sailors, or they are seeking information on a specific boat and appreciate that this is something you wish to share, if this is the case and you are not a member, please contact our Class Secretary (details on the website), as we can post this on your behalf.

Moving forwards

As a non-member you have access to more information on the class and our events, perhaps enough to entice you to join?

We hope you like what you see, the site has been thoroughly tested, but please bear with us as we get things up and running, this is new to us all!
