The Class Association is supporting the first Supernova Training Day of the year at Hunts SC on April 27th followed by the Noble Marine Travellers' Open on the Saturday.

The Training Day is an opportunity to pick up some tips on rigging, tuning or sailing your boat and is especially useful for anyone new to the class. Anyone can come, as long as you are a Class Association member... and it's free!

The training will be run by Andy Kerr, a freelance dinghy & windsurfing coach. He used to sail at Hunts SC so should have many useful tips on lake sailing.

There is no need to book although it's useful to know that you are coming. Expect to be ready to sail for 10:30am. The club will be open from 8:30am and camping on Thursday night would be possible if anyone is interested. Please let Jon Pebody at Hunts know your ETA (post on the Association facebook page or via their forum) so he can arrange to unlock. Whilst there is no charge for the training there will be some filled rolls and hot drinks available at low cost during the day. Liability insurance is required for your boat, same as if you were racing.

Most people will be staying on for the Noble Marine Travellers Open on the Saturday. There is a local pub for food in the evening and everyone is welcome to both the Open and the meal.

Let's make it a big turnout if we can.
