85 Years Young

Calling all Moth Sailors,

This year our Nationals are being held at Staunton Harold SC near Derby, from Wednesday 2nd August to Saturday 5th August inclusive. This event is open to all British Moths irrespective of age or helm’s experience, the only condition being that the helm must be a paid-up member of the BMBA. If you aren’t already a member, you can either join in advance with the attached form, or in person at the Nationals. Competitors can enter for the whole Open, or for individual days.

As part of the Nationals, and in celebration of 85 years of British Mothing, we are holding a draw for a brand new British Moth sail. To qualify, you simply have to be a member of the BMBA no later than the end of Nationals ie 5th August. In addition, if you have been a member continuously for the last four years, you will qualify for an additional ticket.

Also, if more tickets are desired, additional tickets will be available for sale at the Nationals at £5 each. More chances to win!

The draw will take place at the final Open of the year at Hunts in October.

If you intend to sail the Nationals, please be reminded that each boat requires a Measurement Certificate and a valid self-certified buoyancy test. These are easily obtainable from me (the Secretary), and I will be bringing some to Nationals if you need one.

Sailing is not the only activity available at the Nationals. There is an evening social programme, as well as the BMBA AGM. For those interested, there is camping available on-site. Full details are to be found on the BMBA website at www.britishmoth.co.uk/nationals-2017/
