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.
The event will be hosted by Oxford District Schools Sailing Association at Farmoor Reservoir, Oxford, OX2 9NS. This is a central location for teams travelling from around the country, and is a RYA Team Racing Academy who are very experienced in organizing team racing.
