Happy 2020 Nacra Family.
At the 2020 AGM held in early January, we all discussed having a more centralised website for Information on Class Events, Rules, Boat Information etc.
Please see below link to a very comprehensive website that I am sure none of you have ever seen or knew existed! It holds all information through to State Level contacts and all events scheduled for all Nacra classes.

Also a big thanks to everyone that took down a Nacra 350 for the children to sail, it certainly was a great site seeing 9 children sail on these boats through the week,
A total of 41 boats competed at the titles which is a fantastic fleet for that part of the world. The series and social events went very well and all that attended had a great time.
Big thanks especially to all the North Queensland crew that drove to the event. I think Adam would of done well over 7000kms with two young kids in the car as well.
A big thanks to Jeff and Liz Southall who did a great job of hosting the event a lot goes on behind the scene to run a regatta.
Hope to see you at the next events.
From the team at Queensland Nacra association.
