TEAM PLACES STILL AVAILABLE - SEND YOUR APPLICATION QUICKLY
COMPETITORS MUST BE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE IN THE YEAR OF THE EVENT. CHECK YOUR SAILORS' DATE OF BIRTH BEFORE SENDING YOUR ENTRIES, AS THERE WAS AN ERROR ON THE EVENT INFORMATION, WHICH HAS NOW BEEN CORRECTED.
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.
This year, the NSSA, in partnership with the Merlin Rocket Owners Association (MROA), sent three teams to the Merlin Rocket National Championships in Pwllheli. Feedback from all corners has been really positive, and both the NSSA and the MROA are pleased to announce that this opportunity will be running again in 2018.
The 2017 NSSA AGM will be taking place at Banbury Premier Inn Hotel, Ermont Way, OX16 4AE, on Saturday 7th October, at 6:30pm. The AGM has been arranged to coincide with the Single Handed Team Racing, and should allow sailors, parents, and helpers time to attend between dinner at the hotel and the evening entertainment. Please come along and see what has been going on behind the scenes at the NSSA!
The draft agenda is attached below.
Hope to see some of you there!
