National 12 Virtual Talk: How to get the best out of your N12 © National 12 Class

On 13th March the N12 Class are hosting virtual talk and Q&A session, starting at 19:30.

We have 5 speakers lined up so far:

  • Tom Stewart – Multiple Burton Cup Winner, N12 National Champion with years of experience in sail making and design under his belt.

  • Graham Camm – Also Multiple Burton Cup Winner, N12 National Champion with years of high level sailing experience and home building expert (especially with T-Foil Rudders and Carbon Booms).

  • John Meadowcroft – Two-time Burton Cup Winner and often seen going round the windward mark 1st in any N12 championship race. John has years of N12 sailing experience.

  • David Peacock – David has extensive N12 experience and has been at the forefront of many developments within the class. More recently, David can be seen helming his 1972 China Doll, N2620 and will be able to advise on all ‘Vintage N12’ related questions.

  • Andy Davis – 20 years of experience in sail making and set up HD Sails alongside Jim Hunt in 2011. Well known in the Merlin Rocket fleet, we hope to see Andy in a N12 very soon!
So, if you are new to the N12 or a seasoned member of the fleet, feel free to attend and ask the experts your questions – they will share their tips for N12 success on the water. The session will be recorded for those who cannot watch live on the night.
