Big weekend planned for National 12 70th Anniversary Regatta at Northampton SC 19/5/06

There are now just 10 days to go until the National 12 70th anniversary celebrations commence with a grand regatta at Northampton Sailing Club on Pitsford Reservoir (27-29 May).

National 12s of all ages are invited to join the event, which will include Gill series racing, vintage racing and the junior championships. There are already over 60 confirmed entries, including Witch (N163) the first boat to win the Burton Cup and many other vintage boats.

Off the water, there will be plenty of activities for the family including a bouncy castle, sumo suits and lawn games. The weekend will culminate in an anniversary dinner on the Sunday evening, followed by a grand pursuit race on the Monday where the youngest and oldest N12s will fight it out around the same course (with appropriate handicapping!)

Current and past N12 owners and their families and friends are all very welcome to come down to the club, whether to sail, check out the latest designs, admire the varnish on the vintage boats or simply to catch up with old friends over a beer. Come and join the fun!
