The Merlin Rocket Owners' Association is delighted to announce the continued support from Cratinsure, as it prepares for the Craftinsure Silver Tiller 2021.

Class Chair, Chris Kilsby said, "We are pleased that Craftinsure have agreed to continue its long-standing support to the Merlin Rocket through the sponsorship of our Silver Tiller series. The series is run on restricted waters (rivers and lakes/ small reservoirs), open waters (reservoirs and estuaries) and the sea across a wide range of venues in the UK."

Craftinsure founder Rob Cage, who races 1692, a vintage Merlin Rocket and modern wide boat 3768, added, "We are delighted to support the Merlin Class again, we are looking forward to being able to get afloat real soon, finger crossed."

Rob added, I'm sure I'm not alone in spending winter evenings planning all the sailing events I hope to attend when we get this COVID Nightmare behind us.

Stay safe and see you on the water.
