Snettisham Beach SC Is an East Coast venue with a long and proud tradition of hosting big fleet events.

The club was recommended and kindly stepped in at short notice as our 2019 Sea Championship hosts when Exe SC had to postpone until 2020 due to scheduled works.

Snettisham SCs facilities were renovated and extended in 2015 and there is space for camping and campervans.

The event comprises of two days of racing, however due to tide times this will take place on Saturday PM and Sunday AM which will reduce the weekend time overhead but may well test some competitors' athleticism.

The club has a small fleet of local Supernovas who are aiming to compete.

Programme, contact and facilities details can be found in the NOR and Welcome message with the SIs to follow shortly.

Looking forward to seeing all you wave lovers there.

In 2019 Girton SC hosts the last open before the Inlands.

Like many of the historic X-gravel pit venues, it offers interesting 'around the island' challenges, although at 90 acres (60 sailable) it is by no means a restricted water.

Those arriving on Friday evening are welcome to join in with the Friday night pursuit racing (7pm start) and also enjoy free camping, take advantage of club bar prices and hopefully enjoy a legendary Girton SC sunset.

Girton SC sailors are active on the Supenova Traveller Circuit and attend many of the other Supernova events and so have well established friendships with members of other Supenova travelling club sailors, which usually results in a good turnout and  competative racing. 

Galley services will be available and a warm welcome is guaranteed.

For enquiries please contact Tony Bleasdale at supernovatonyb@gmail.com or 07950 255747.
