First call is out for entries to the Singlehanded Team Racing taking place on 8th and 9th October at Aztec Upton Warren, Bromsgrove.
For those who have not been to this event before it is a very easy weekend event to attend, with teams of three sailors sailing in boats supplied, with the venue being less than five minutes from junction 5 of the M5 or junction 1 of the M42. Accommodation is being arranged at the nearby Holiday Inn.
The deadline for receipt of entries is Friday 16th September 2016, so there is plenty of time to sort out the teams. If you cannot give team member names by this date, then send your entry form and cheque and let me have names closer to the event.

The NSSA is once again pleased to be able to offer a set of grants for local associations to allow them to run accessible "All-Girls Training". “All-Girls Training”, or “Girls-Only Training” is a scheme to encourage young girls to get into sailing at a county or local association level. In this scheme, relaxed, informal training events, aimed at girls who have not yet attended an NSSA event, are run by local associations or county teams. The aim of this training is to allow these girls to gain confidence, meet other like-minded girls, and to allow the local association to form a relationship with these girls and their parents or guardians.
Well done to all who competed in the NSSA Inlands at Datchet on 28th and 29th May. The results are here...
As most team managers will be aware, it is a requirement of NSSA events for all adults who are accompanying teams to any of our events and staying overnight with the children to have had an enhanced DBS check, including of the Children’s Barred List. Adults who are supervising children but not staying with them overnight on the same campsite may not need to have a Barred List check if their supervision of the children is alongside someone who has had a Barred List check, though they will still need to have an Enhanced DBS check. This check will usually be done through your local association, centre or school group. Adults who are attending the regatta and helping with the running of the event (such as race officials and safety crew) are not supervising the children and so they don't need to have a DBS check, as long as they are not camping overnight with the children. If you are unsure which adults will need to have which checks you can contact the NSSA Safeguarding officer Jennie Conway for advice.
