As part of the RYA National Match Racing Series 2017, NSSA are invited to enter teams into the "Schools Championship" event on 2nd and 3rd December at Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy.
The event will be sailed in Elliot 6M boats, with eight teams of three or four sailors, up to a maximum combined weight of 260kgs. Sailors must be over the age of 14 on the start date of the event and in full time secondary education.
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 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.
