Some NSSA thank you notes…

A very big thank you for a superb regatta, which was definitely down to your meticulous organisation…..

…. The team of volunteers at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club worked extremely hard to keep the sailing going, the site clean and the cups of tea and coffee supplied (despite the large numbers of adults) – I am sure that the SC members are now enjoying the peace and quiet. At the school, the quality and quantity of the food was the best I have seen in the 22 years I have attended NSSA regattas, and Ruth worked extremely hard to try to do everything she could to help all of the adults and youngsters, as did the catering staff and caretakers – please pass on my thanks to everybody involved at the sailing club and school, on behalf of both the NSSA and the Worcestershire team.

I am sure that you must all be exhausted, but hope that you also feel justifiably proud of all that you achieved and can now relax and enjoy the rest of the summer holidays, with continued warm sunshine. I never realise how tired I am during the regatta week until I arrive home…

…. As we are all agreed – NSSA teams and Bassenthwaite SC members – that the sun only shines on the year we come to you, I hope that we are able to return to Bassenthwaite in the not too distant future.!

Warm regards

Vivien Brookes
WSSCA Chairman


Just a quick note to say thanks for everything you did for the NSSA event. It was fab – nothing but positive feedback from my sailors and a great relief to have decent food! I hope we can come back soon..



I must apologise for the time it has taken me to get on to the email to say thank you….. I can’t thank you and the team enough for making NSSA 2013 and enjoyable experience, the team really enjoyed it and are still talking about it. As a novice team manager, year 1 under my belt, you helped me tremendously and kept me on the straight and narrow and I have taken the mantle on again for NSSA 2014 and our accommodation is already booked and deposits paid.

They can’t wait!

Again many thanks for your hard work, dedication and for being there to help

The kids at my club are still absolutely full of the nationals, they had a fantastic week and it has really fired them up for future events.

So thank you for all your help.

A BIG thank you from Lancashire!

Please excuse this being a little late but we would like to say a huge thank you for a fantastic event. We had a brilliant time and I realise exactly how much time and effort you must have given to organise such a well run and successful regatta. Please pass on our thanks and gratitude to your small army of helpers and all the members of Bassenthwaite Sailing Club who made us so welcome.

Kindest regards

Linda and the Lancashire School Sailing Association Race Team
