The Merlin Rocket Class will be taking part in the RYA class e-sailing spring championships. To choose who represents the Merlin Rocket class, we will be putting together a series of racing using the Virtual Regatta Inshore Gaming platform (https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/inshore-game/
). For anyone who hasn't tried e-Sailing, the game is intuitive, easy to learn and great fun!
The max fleet size is 20, so we may need to do a number of flights and then a Gold Series to determine our champion. We need to get an idea of the number of entrants before wed can determine the dates / timings so if you would like to take part in the Merlin Rocket e-Sailing spring championships, please enter through the link below:
Entries close on Friday 15th May, with all entrants needing to be a member of the MROA prior to racing. Further information on the Class Championships and e-Sailing is provided by the RYA here: https://www.rya.org.uk/Pages/virtual-regatta.aspx
We're looking forward to seeing you 'on the water'...!
That link just say - " You don't have permission to view this form" ?
My apologies - it should be working now... :)
BUMP - Entries close today!
It's great to see that 44 people have entered the Merlin Rocket Spring eSailing Championships! I will work out a plan over the coming few days and send information on fleets and timings (etc) via email. We will have to run three 'flights' and then have a final series to determine the champ as the software limits us to 20 boats max.
Please can I ask for any willing volunteers who have Virtual Regatta VIP membership to run a flight and take scores?
