The Merlin Rocket Owners Association in conjunction with Magic Marine are giving one lucky pair the chance to take part in the Aspire National Championship, hosted by Lyme Regis Sailing Club from 18th to 24th August 2018.

The Merlin Rocket Owners Association boat, 3582, is available for one helm and crew to borrow, both need to be under 25 on the opening day of the National Championship. Magic Marine will cover the entry fee and supply both helm and crew with new sailing and shore kit, a bundle worth over £500!

The event looks to have minimum of 60 boats, in a nine-race series over six days off the beautiful Jurassic coast. Help will be on hand, so you can get to grips with the boat. If we have your attention, here is how to enter.

To qualify

Both helm and crew need to be under 25 on 18th August 2018.

In a 1-minute vlog, tell us why you should be given the boat to use for the Aspire Merlin Rocket National Championships with free Magic Marine sailing and shore kit.

Submit your entry to: Lou Johnson – by midday on Sunday 2nd July.

If you succeed

You will be notified by Friday 6th July, on the Merlin Rocket Owners Association and Magic Marine UK social media and via email.
