Great North Asymmetric Challenge at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club - Preview

by Roy Blackburn on 4 Apr 2013 27-28 April 2013

"There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries."

In other words: Everything is ready to rock for this year's running of GNAC – don't miss it.

The format for the event will be much the same as in recent years – why change a winning formula?

  • The event will be open to all asymmetric dinghies (and Laser Vortexes).
  • There will be 8 scheduled races between 27-28 April 2013.
  • The courses will all be dedicated windward/leeward courses.
  • The entry fee will be £35 for double handers and £25 for single handers.
  • Prizes will include £25 Pinnell & Bax vouchers for the winning helm and crew of both double and single handers.
  • There will be fleet prizes for any class with more than 6 boats.
  • The entry fee will include: 1) A Mexican meal for all competitors on Saturday evening, 2) Live music on Saturday evening, 3) Onsite camping on Friday and Saturday evenings.
  • Additional meals for non competitors will be available.
  • The galley will also be serving breakfasts and lunches etc.

As ever, GNAC will be an event which no asymmetric sailor should miss – see you there.
