National 12 website going analogue

by George Finch 1 Apr 08:37 BST 1 April 2021

After a thorough review of the National Twelve Owners Association rules, it has come to light that the class is not permitted to use the internet for promoting the class. Therefore, in the next 12 days, www.national12.org will be taken offline.

To ensure we retain the information from the discussion board, boat database and how-to guides, the NTOA Committee have agreed to produce a weekly magazine which is to be posted out to all members, hopefully arriving every Monday. A preview of the first magazine, to be called national12.org, in memory of the website, is pictured.

Any notices that would normally be posted on the discussion board or boat database should be sent to for inclusion in the next week's magazine.

After getting the website's content down on paper, we will convert our YouTube Channel to a series, available on DVD. The individual photos in our N12 Flickr Group will be available to order from a catalogue we will produce.

If you wish to pre-order any of the DVDs or photos, please look whilst you can:
