The NS14 is an Australian designed sailing dinghy, intended for competitive family sailing. It has a simple rig, is light enough to be lifted from a trailer into the water by 3 persons of average strength, requires only reasonable fitness to sail, and is affordable by the private sailor.
The Northern Beaches Covid 19 outbreak has forced us to reconsider the upcoming National Titles. Part of Sydney is now in lockdown and interstate borders are at various states of closure and or have quarantine restrictions in place. Today Gosford Sailing Club has also advised that the event must be postponed. The National Committee will reconvene in early 2021 to assess whether it is possible to hold the regatta at a delayed date or whether we need to cancel and look forward to the 2021 Nationals in Tasmania. All current entries will be refunded.
Stay safe over the xmas break and let's hope that we get on top of this outbreak and can return to competitive racing again soon.
