It's Black Friday and the Supernova Class Association really do have a great deal to shout about... That's right, the 2020 Supernova National Championship early bird entry is now open.

The 2020 Nationals will be hosted by Plas Heli on 3rd to 5th July 2020 and boast 10 races for a highly competitive, but friendly fleet. With fleets of over 100 boats the last few years this event is established as one of the largest national championships and a guarantee of a good time on and off the water.

The race report from the epic 2019 event gives you a flavour for how great this event really is.

Entry fees are only £95 and this represents excellent value - the same price as the last two years. The entry includes 3 days of great racing, a free T-shirt and two (!) evening meals. There are also the buddy groups to give you lots of hints and tips to perfect your sailing.

Earlybird entries run until 1 March 2020 and these entries will receive:

  • a £20 Hartley Boats voucher (thanks to Hartley Boats) to spend in their chandlery.
  • a £20 discount off the 2020 Supernova Inland championship entry (not transferrable).
If that wasn't enough then you also get an entry into a free prize draw to and could win one of two new sails or two new top covers. The prize draw will only take place if we pass 100 boats before 1 March 2020 so get out there and spread the word to all of your fellow supernova sailors!

The event is really inclusive across the whole fleet, so here is what our 2019 fleet winners said:

Cliff Milliner - Winner (gold fleet) - "The supernova nationals are always at great venues, with over 100 boats on the line it's a great mix of tight high class racing and social activities. Definitely one of the best events of the year!"

Jeremy Higson - Winner (silver fleet) - "Great tactical racing with a friendly crowd, looking forward to next year in my own boat."

Paul Schofield - Winner (bronze fleet) - "It was my first Supernova Nationals at Paignton in 2019 - great welcome to the boat park, strong support from my allocated buddy, and challenging sea conditions for me on the Sunday. But what fun, new friends and such great organisation - can't wait for 2020!"

So don't wait, sign on now and encourage your friends to sign up too - we need to get through that magic 100 boat level for the amazing prize draws.
