The NSSA will have a large presence at the RYA Dingy Show, being held at Alexandra Palace over the weekend of 28th February to 1st March.
Whether you’re a cruiser or racer, the show has some fantastic free talks and coaching sessions lined up with the experts who know how to make a difference to your sailing. On the NSSA Stand you can meet fellow sailors and find out about NSSA Events coming up and other opportunities which the NSSA Offers. There will be details of all the NSSA events planned for 2015 and the future. We also expect to be making a major announcement at the show.
If you are visiting the show and able to help out for a while, perhaps telling others of your experiences with the NSSA we would like to hear from you.
ODSSA are planning a Match Racing event at Farmoor Reservoir on Sunday March 8th using the four SB3/20's that they have based there. NSSA have decided that the winner of this event will be awarded the NSSA Match Racing Trophy for 2014. (We are very hopeful that there will be an NSSA Match Racing Championship for 2015 in November.)
The entry fee will be £200 per team and there will be a damage deposit of £250 per team.
The format of the event will be training on the Saturday in booked slots - so that all can get a go. The regatta will be run on the Sunday only.
The 2015 NSSA Double Handed 2 boat Team Racing Championship will take place on Saturday 21st Match 2015. The Notice of Race, Entry form, Parental Declaration and Sailing Instructions are now available.
