MERLIN ROCKET OPEN MEETING
Over the weekend of 6th & 7th October the Merlin Rocket fleet headed north to Hollingworth Lake for the Craftinsure Silver Tiller and the Felucca Trophy.
With the forecast of wet, windy and cold for Saturday and no wind on Sunday, it was hard to get motivated to travel, but you should never believe the forecast. On arrival, the sun was out, chilly but not too cold and a nice breeze. 21 teams arrived and rigged for a 12.30 start.
