Merlin Rocket

Britain has led the world in the design of sailing dinghies, and the Merlin Rocket, although 60 years old, has stayed at the forefront by being a "development class"; so long as it fits within some basic measurements, designers can experiment. All the great UK designers have been involved, from Jack Holt who designed the first Merlin in 1946, through Beecher Moore, Spud Rowsell, Phil Morrison, Ian Proctor, Jon Turner, John Oakley and Lawrie Smith.
