2018 NSSA Single Handed Team Racing
The 2018 single-handed team racing event will take place on the 27th and 28th October. The event will be hosted by Oxford Sail Training Trust (OSTT) at Farmoor Reservoir, Oxford, OX2 9NS. This is a central location for teams travelling from around the country, and are very experienced in organizing team racing.
