The Merlin Rocket Inland Championships, sponsored by Nautilius Yachting, is being held at Blithfield SC this weekend.

The event will be taking place over Saturday and Sunday. 5 races are schedules with races 3,4 and 5 counting for Silver Tiller points. It is intended that these races will be the last on Saturday and both on Sunday. Forecast looks good at this stage for both days.

First race on Saturday will be at 12:00, 10:30 on Sunday. Entry fee will be £32, with tickets for the evening pig roast £8pp. The bar will be open till late and entertainment is planned.

Free camping will be available onsite, or local accommodation is available - see the club website. Breakfast will be available at the club. Tea, coffee and "nibbles" will be available all weekend and are included in your entry.

Cash machines - the nearest cash machine is outside walking distance from the club. Bring enough cash if you can!

The club will be open on Friday for early arrivals and food will be available if you let us know you're coming. The bar will also be open.

We look forward to seeing a bumper turnout of Merlins for what we hope will be the best Inlands ever.
