The Merlin Rocket Owners Association (M.R.O.A.) is excited to announce the first in a series of Boat Chats, webinars where Merlin Rockets members and sailors can listen to their peers in the fleet and get ready for when we are next on the water.

First up is our multiple National Champion winning Crew Sam Breary to talk about 'Getting it right when it matters most'.

There will be a 30-40 mins presentation on 'preparation' for the Aspire Merlin Rocket Nationals 2021. Preparing yourself, your boat, your knowledge about the location and getting on the water. It will also include a section on planning and development. Sam's presentation will be followed by a Q&A, so please come prepared.

Your host for the evening will be Class Chair Chris Kilsby, and places are limited to 100, it will be on a first come first serve basis. The evening will be recorded so if you unable to make it you will be able to watch again.

Save the date: Thursday 18th February @ 1930
