The big Class Association event of 2019 is the National Championships in Paignton, 28 to 30 June. Enter by 30th November 2018 to get the best entry package!! Discounted entries run until 31 January 2019
As announced at the 2018 AGM, the Class Association does not have any entry fee sponsorship for 2019. As a result, the Committee has decided to use some of the accrued Class Association funds to provide special incentives and generous discounts for those who sign up early.

For those of you that don’t know Paignton, is a fantastic place to sail situated on the English Riviera in Torbay. The Supernovas had a fantastic event there in 2015 and we are very excited to go back to this friendly venue.
Launching/recovery is off a beach with good boat storage on Paignton Green. Expect even more improvements to the very popular buddy groups, so even if you haven’t attended before you will be supported by some more experienced helms.
In addition to what will no doubt be some amazing sailing, there will be a Commodore’s buffet on the Friday evening to ensure everyone has a good time. The Nationals isn’t just about the top few sailors, we want everyone to have a great time and really enjoy the social side of things. We hope this encourages some new faces to attend, regardless of their sailing ability. There will also be tickets available for other halves, again we hope this encourages a bigger and more inclusive event.
We asked Frank McMullen (61st in 2018 nationals) what he loves about the event and he said:
"What can you not love about the Supernova Nationals... good venues, great racing, fantastic social evenings and best of all, meeting old friends and making new ones."
As we are “going it alone” this year, we really do need the support of our members to sign up and take part in this great event. The Association does not make any money on the base entry price.
Entries close on 31 May 2019 - you CANNOT enter on the day.
We look forward to seeing you there and please spread the word around your club members to see if we can get to the magic 100 mark again.
Please note that if you enter and are no longer able to attend then the Association will allow you to swap your entry with someone (which you will need to find) up to 31 May 2019, but we need to be informed of this. We are not offering any refunds, sorry. Also within 4 weeks of the event it is too late for us to amend entries, so we cannot allow swaps then. We appreciate this is a "hard line" but we have had to take this following some issues arising as part of a previous entry.
