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.
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!
The NSSA is pleased to announce that this summer we are sending three teams to the Merlin Rocket National Championships. 6 young sailors, from Cumbria, West Sussex, and Derbyshire, will be heading out to Pwllheli this August, to experience racing this challenging boat at a world-class venue.
