The National Titles for the Flying 11 Class will be hosted by Belmont 16ft Sailing Club on Lake Macquarie, NSW from Sunday 10th January to Saturday 16th January 2021. With many National Championships been cancelled over the January period, the Flying 11s are keen to welcome sailors from other classes who wish to try their hand.

There will be a large amount of local junior talent on display with Belmont 16s having a large representation with the majority of their Flying 11 Fleet competing. Belmont Flying 11 Sailors are lucky to have Chris Nicholson as “Team Belmont” coach. Chris is an Australian Sailor from Belmont who is a two time Olympian and multiple World Champion and has competed in several around the world Volvo Ocean Races. Chris is also part of the InfoTrack Super Maxi team that will be competing in the Sydney to Hobart Race this year.

The Flying 11s are very lucky to have the support of Allen as major sponsor of the regatta and Liros Ropes and Vaikobi day sponsors for the regatta.

Approximately 60 boats are expected to compete and we welcome spectators to enjoy watching what we love to do on the water!
