We have so few active boats in the UK these days we are now very reliant on visiting teams from Germany, Holland and elsewhere to support our Nationals if we going to survive, so please can I ask that spread the word around your National Class

We have had to change the dates and venue of our National Championships.
The reason for this that we have been advised that the local conditions at Highcliffe are such that launching & recovering plus sailing to/from the sailing area may prove very difficult for the Flying Dutchman especially in adverse weather conditions Therefore in the best interests of the class the decision was made to abandon the idea of going to Highcliffe and instead go to Lake Bala in North Wales & hold our Championship as part of the clubs August Bank Holiday Regatta. Bala S. C. last hosted our Championships back in 2006 and the club have always made the class very welcome whenever we have been there in the past.
