In 2021 the Merlin Rocket Owners Association (M.R.O.A.) will be working closely with SailRacer to deliver our 75th championships and we will be using their web platform to handle the entry and results system as well as bringing the week to the computer screen of those unable to attend the event, or if you’re just an interested observer.
To pre-register, please complete the registration form (Links at the end of the post). It will ask for an advance payment of £25 to secure your place. Once this is done you will be able to manage your entry online and make any crew or boat changes, as necessary. This advance payment will be fully refundable in the event of cancellation, so there’s no reason not to get your entry in now!
We will be looking to open up entries for the payment of the balance on 4th April. If things are not looking good this will be postponed until 4th May, and then 7th June if necessary. You will be kept fully informed as to what’s going on via email from SailRacer if you have pre-registered, or via the class website if you haven’t. Again, in the event of cancellation these entry fees are refundable.
Entry fees will be as follows:
• Loyalty Bonus (Champs 2019 entrants, form received and deposit paid by 21st June) £225
• Standard Entry (Form received and deposit paid by 21st June) £250
• Late Entry (Entry received or balance of entry paid after 1st August) £300
A discount of £50 is offered to entries in the following criteria:
• Helm 25 or under (On first day of racing)
• Old Boats (3603 or below)
• First time helms (Not competed at a Merlin Rocket Nationals as a helm or crew before)
Only one discount per entry
If you are thinking of coming to the championships, please pre-register as it will make it far easier to plan what we deliver. Thank you to our title sponsor Aspire Financial Advisers for continuing their support of the Merlin Rocket Class, if you are a company looking to support the event please get in touch with David Hayes [email protected]
