Sorry everyone: we have had to postpone Merlin Week 2020 to 4th-9th July 2021. It has proved impossible for us to run the event safely as well as fulfil our social obligations to the Salcombe community.

Merlin Week 2021 entry process

We will run 2021 with the 2020 entry draw outcome as below, including the waiting list as it stands. To be express: if you have an entry for a cancelled event this year, then you have an entry for next. Any spaces becoming available on the 2021 entry list will be offered on in the usual way. 

If you would like to add your name to the new waiting list, please email a completed entry form available below, to:  


No payment is due unless and until you have an entry.

Entry fee refunds.

Covid 19 entry fee refund policy: To those who do not wish to roll their entry to 2021, SYC will offer a full refund of your 2020 entry fee. Please email us at:



The date for Merlin Week 2021 is 4th-9th July 2021.


The date for the 2021 Silver Tiller is 17th/18th April 2021 (Easter is 2nd to 5th April 2021).

Our very best wishes to you all at this difficult time.
