Regional Representatives & Try a Merlin

Regional Sails and Service Centre

Merlin Rocket sailors are looked after by Regional Representatives each with a knowledge of the activities in their area. They can answer questions on many aspects of Merlins related to ownership, trading, and racing, or guide you to someone who can offer further support.

You may want to try out a Merlin at a location reasonably close to you, get advice on your boat setup, want to know the best place to sail with other boats like yours or how to enter local events. Maybe you need to get a sail measured?

map Crews are often in great demand and we can try to put you in touch with a matchmaker.
Just ring one of the team!
