Welcome to the NS14 Association 

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 NS14 National Association would like to acknowledge and thank the following suppliers and sponsors for their ongoing support of the class.

 

NS14 Nationals Cancellation Hobart 2022

Hi All,
The National Executive met last night to discuss the status of the upcoming Hobart Nationals.
Unfortunately entry numbers have been low with very few boats planning on attending from the mainland. This is somewhat understandable given the impact of the pandemic and the constantly changing travel restrictions we have been facing through the year.
We conducted a quick email check last week to see if there were people planning on attending but not yet registered and didn't come up with enough additional entries to make the regatta viable so unfortunately we have had to make the decision to cancel this year's national titles.
Our thanks go out to the Tasmanian committee members and organizers who have already put in a significant amount of work to try to host the event (for the second year running).
The National Executive is considering options for the location of the next National Titles and will consult with the class to identify the best venue.

Apologies to those who might have had plans affected by this decision but we had little choice given the entry numbers.

Latest Update on the National Titles

The NSW NS14 Association, with the consent of the National Committee has rescheduled the 2020 National titles which were postponed in December 2020 due to Covid 19. The regatta will now be held over Easter 2021 (2-5 April) to be sailed at the Port Stephens Sailing and Aquatic Club.

This will be our last chance to hold a national title this season.The event will remain subject to participants not being inhibited from travelling to the regatta due to Covid restrictions. Further notice will be provided if there is any change in the circumstances affecting the regatta.. Online registration will soon be opened with payment deferred until after the regatta to reduce administration in the event that the regatta is not able to proceed. The Notice of Race will be issued shortly with further details. Please use the online registration to give us an indication of likely numbers. With your support we can make this a great regatta!
