We now have the most entries booked for any event in the UK before.

The Nationals is looking like the most exciting turnout and fun event ever.

Please come and join us lets get those entries to 50 + and be the biggest fleet globally. Any level is welcome.

Victoria had a lovely chat with Joe Pester who told her that even in the big winds of Sunday at Ulswater, those who were new to the fleet still got out and sailed even if they didn't manage to finish a windy race.

At the front of the fleet the competition is of top quality and they are all so encouraging for us all to give it a go. At my first event 3 years ago the leader was lapping me and told me to follow him. I was elated when I finished my first ever race. You can do it too!
