LOCATION - The event is being hosted for the first time by Banbury Sailing Club which is situated on the Northants/Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border. This is a relatively small family orientated club situated in the centre of the country.
SAILING - The event will be sailed under the Wilson Swiss League format in topper dinghies, which are provided by the organisers. We are hoping to run in excess of two hundred races during the weekend to provide plenty of competitive racing for all teams.
The NSSA Executive Committee is pleased to announce it has concluded the recruitment for this role and have appointed Stuart Jones to fill this role. Stuart will also continue in his role of Chair of the Sailing Committee.
As Development Officer, Stuart reports to the Executive Committee and will be responsible for helping to source funding for both the NSSA and local associations, helping build links with class associations and other youth organisations to promote the NSSA and increase participation at our events and help lead interactions with the national governing bodies to ensure the NSSA remains at the forefront of national developments.
This year, 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.
The NSSA will be holding a review meeting on Tuesday evening of the National Regatta at Grafham Water.
This meeting is a chance for all members to come down and discuss what the NSSA has been up to over the last year, and what we're thinking about doing next. It's also a great opportunity to tell us what you feel we need to work on and improve, or what you think we do well! We value all feedback from members, so please come along and give us your thoughts.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th July, 8pm, in the top bar of Grafham Sailing Club.
Looking forward to seeing some of you there!
