UK National Series

The UK Nacra 15 Class Association committee put together an annual UK Nacra 15 National Series. These events primarily run alongside well established catamaran events, providing a great opportunity for our teams to race one another, but also gain experience from life-long catamaran sailors! Our calendar aims to cover a geographically diverse range of venues, to promote inclusivity within the class, and allow sailors to experience a wide range of sailing conditions.
