The Merlin Rocket Class has launched their latest edition of their class magazine and it's now available in digital format.

There are two editions per year - the highly anticipated summer edition which includes the fleets for Salcombe Week, along with some other fabulous content about the upcoming Aspire National Championships in Tenby, tips from our class sponsors and general chat from our members. The Autumn magazine comes out around the end of the season including the events for 2025 and is a round up on the year and all that has happened - which will be lot given there are over 41 class organised events happening!

Pat Blake, editor for the magazine commented that "It's wonderful to see the magazine in both print and online editions. Members tell me they enjoy reading the magazine which is why I continue to produce it. It is important that we keep a print edition, as it connects our community, however the new digital edition means we can reach even more people, giving back to our sponsors and hopefully recruiting more sailors to our wonderful class! I hope you all enjoy this latest edition."

Check out the latest edition of the magazine. Members who have opted in for a print edition will have theirs in the coming days.
