Welcome to the National 18 Class

The Class has evolved a deep history, from the original clinker wooden Uffa Fox ‘Ace’ adopted in 1938, through to our latest iteration, the thoroughly exciting & modern Phil Morrison designed, two or three person, trapeze, dinghy being built by White Formula and formally launched at the 2015 Dinghy Show.

The Class supports a thriving fleet, from the 75+ year old classic woodies through to our latest Morrison design, with an unrivalled history of keen competition and a lively bonhomie amongst the multi generational fleets in clubs around England, Ireland, the Isle of man, Scotland & Wales.

Dear all

National 18 stand at The Southampton Boat Show 2016 - the story so far......

The dates and opening times are Friday 16th Sept to Sunday 25th - 10am to 6.30pm.

We have a carpeted open air space in The Arena close to the main entrance (See circled A106 on attached map). The space is enough for the N18 and little more.

The N18 on show will be ‘The Shadow’, kindly lent by the Berneys. More N18 participation will come on the last show day, Sunday 25th, when ‘Panther’ and ‘Hurricane’ will compete in the ‘Battle of the Classes’. This is a pursuit race that takes place in the area off the show’s marina.

The Berneys and Vines will set up on Thursday 15th Sept, and the Berneys will be in charge on Friday 16th Sept.

We need a presence on the stand each day, but not necessarily full-time. We get two free exhibitor passes each day and can apply for more reduced price entry tickets.

Can you help out any day??? or do you know anyone who could? Particularly over the first weekend 17/18 Sept???

Best wishes and thanks, Jeremy & Max Vines
