Steve Nicholson Trophy - Northampton SC, UK


Steve Nicholson Trophy
Northampton SC
Saturday 11th Feb
supported by Pinnell & Bax

Northampton Sailing Club is delighted to announce the Steve Nicholson Memorial Trophy event is back in 2023, with headline sponsor Pinnell & Bax. It will take place on Saturday 11th February.

The Steve Nicholson Trophy is one of the most well-known winter regattas in the UK and has been well supported in the past. The event is raced in aid of the Asthma & Lung UK charity in memory of Steve, who was a popular sailor and member at Northampton Sailing Club and well respected in the sailing world.

The event, which has been held on an annual basis since 2002 is a popular winter event for single and double handers with a reputation of providing great racing. It is raced in two separate fleets with an overall winner of the title. This provides a good challenge and excellent practice for the season ahead with the split fleet providing a large mixed single-hander fleet of predominantly similar boats

Tim Hire won the Trophy in 2019 in his RS Aero 7 when he won the single-handed fleet on an excitingly breezy day. Can the RS Aeros win it back again in 2023? .

Entry fees are £30 for double-handers and £25 for single-handers, in aid of Asthma UK.
If you would like to make an extra donation to Asthma UK you can do this through their website at www.asthma.org.uk

  • Briefing all fleets takes place at 10:00am
  • Single handlers: 2 races, with a 10:30 start
  • Double handlers: 2 races, with an 11:30 start (approx)
