DO NOT BOOK YOUR PARKING WITH THE ACADEMY. THE UKWA HAS A SPECIAL ARRANGMENT AND WILL COLLECT REDUCED FEES AT REGISTRATION
The UKWA National Championships 2010 begins at Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy over the Bank Holiday Weekend. And What a way to spend a bank holiday. Although we will have paid a small supliment of only £5.00 per day to compete at this venue there is no better location in the UK for course racing. Weymouth historically has delivered great events for the UKWA and so on our return after last years events we look forward to three days af action packed racing.

About The Academy
WPNSA officially opened on 1st April 2000, with residence taken up in the converted ex-naval offices, whilst the plans for the new Academy were taking shape.
The clubhouse was opened officially in June 2005 and includes 30 pontoons, new slipways and much expanded room for boat storage and car parking.
The academy has excellent shower, toilet and changing facilities. In addition there is a cafe style restaurant with free wi-fi including use of two computers. A viewing deck overlooks the harbour.
There is no grass for rigging and although large carpet mats have been installed these soon get full so a rigging mat is always a good idea.
The slipways at Weymouth are generally extreamly slippy, so extra care should always be taken especially at low water.
