Sign up for Bart’s Bash 2015 is now underway and people can go to www.bartsbash.com and sign up to sail in the event on the 20th September. It is open to anyone and there Is no minimum number required to participate. So long as your venue is registered, you can easily get involved.
When registering, we have introduced a new feature whereby you can link to an organisation, the NSSA is already in there. Anyone who links to that organisation can race at their home club or event but after the event, the results of everyone who registered under that organisation will be pulled together so anyone who links to the NSSA will be able to see their results against each other, wherever in the country they may sail. Another way of bringing a global sailing race to a local level.
It is hoped people will make a donation to enter or actively fundraise but it isn’t compulsory.
Funding is available to assist young people who may not be able to attend the National Youth Regattas to do so. Applications which are required by June 19th are invited from Local Associations through their Team Managers who will have been sent details and an application form.
1. Laser Performance will be providing six Laser Bahia dinghies to be used in the Mount Haes event this year, and as the boats will be on site throughout the week, Laser Performance have agreed that these boats may be used during the week for a limited number of sailors who would not otherwise have a boat to sail at the NYR. The bursary will include free use of a Laser Bahia dinghy, entry fee, camping and meals on the event designated campsite. Please bear in mind that the Laser Bahia is a large, double handed, three sail dinghy and it is unlikely that sailors under the age of 15 will be able to handle the boat. You should indicate if only one of the sailors in the DH boats is applying for a bursary.
2. If sailors have access to a dinghy to take part in the event (possibly a centre or club dinghy) but are not able to pay the additional fees required, for a limited number of sailors we can offer a bursary to include entry fee, camping and meals on the event designated campsite. Please indicate if only one of the sailors in the DH boats is applying for a bursary.
3. We hope to be able to make available additional double handed dinghies (RS Fevas) for a limited number of sailors who would not otherwise have a boat to sail at the NYR. The bursary will include free use of a dinghy, entry fee, camping and meals on the designated campsite. You should indicate if only one of the sailors in the DH boats is applying for a bursary.
Application Forms are available now and need to be returned by June 19th

The NSSA had a large presence at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, held at Alexandra Palace over this weekend 28th February to 1st March. As well as our stand we were able to announce a major investment in the future by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
Iain Percy, Trustee of the Foundation, flew in from his Artemis America's Cup team base in San Francisco to attend the annual Show and to present a cheque from the Foundation for Twenty Three Thousand Pounds (£23,000) to James Conway, Treasurer of the National Schools Sailing Association.
The money is one of the first major grants made by the Foundation and will be used by the NSSA to fund school aged children, up to the age of 18, to participate in training programmes, regattas and instructor courses throughout the country. It will also fund training, race management and safety courses for volunteers of all ages across the country who currently work with the NSSA to develop youth sailing.
