2019 Nationals


13th to 16th June 2019 Hosted by Plymouth Youth Sailing at the Mount Batten Centre, Plymouth

Entry will be open on the class website very shortly


Plymouth Youth Sailing Club and the Mount Batten Centre look forward to hosting the International Canoe and Cherub class National Championships between the 13th& 16th June 2019. Our previous experience of hosting Supernova, Topper, Laser and RS events in the recent past, plus a history of hosting a number of National Youth regattas, has given us a broad level of expertise in event management. We hope that your 2019 National Championships will be a great success on the waters of Plymouth Sound.

On arrival in Plymouth from the A38, please follow the Brown signs to Mount Batten. At the main site entrance, volunteers will inform you where you need to park your boat/trailer.

After unloading your boat, please park your car in the car park on the south side of the road, (this is a free council car park). We are using the Mount batten car parks for boat storage. Please do not go straight to a slipway to unload.

Please register as soon as possible in the Race Office (opening times 18.00 to 21.00 Wednesday evening and 09.00 to 10.30 Thursday ). This will be in the classroom in the main boat park. If you arrive before the Race Office is open, please go to MBC Reception, at the front of the building, where they will help you.

Please note that the Mount Batten car park areas are managed by an automated system. If you drive into their car parks you have a limited parking time (40mins) to unload your boat and drive out before a fine is issued. This is out of our control and is automatic.

Your entry fee includes use of the changing and shower facilities and boat parking for the event from Wednesday evening until after racing on Sunday afternoon. If you intend arriving before that time or stay later, you will need to make your own arrangements with the Mount Batten Centre.

Details of racing will be contained in the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions

The Mount Batten Centre has a selection of standard and ensuite rooms, including family rooms, prices start from £44 per night including breakfast for 2 people, book early to avoid disappointment.
