This is the first visit to the North for a couple of years, with South Shields pulling out all the stops, so make us proud with a good turn out from the North and the South.  There are a range of guesthouses and hotels in the area – for accommodation ideas, please see  For those who like to camp, there is very limited camping space and room for camper vans on site so this will be strictly on a first come first served basis.  Best to turn up early and get some extra sailing practise in!


Registration: The Race Office will be open as follows:

Friday 2nd September 2016     from    09:00 to 12:00

Saturday 3rd September 2016  from    09:00 to 10:00

Please also remember to be eligible for the Phantom Nationals you need to be a fully paid up member of the Phantom class association and display your 2016 sticker on your transom.

We will also be doing spot weight and measurement checks on boats and sails (and sailors) so please help avoid any embarrassment and ensure your sail has been measured, your boat has all the correct bands on the boom/mast and a valid measurement certificate.

The committee would appreciate measurement of sails and boats being done before the nationals as it affects their own ‘preparation’ time

Look forward to seeing you all there, Phil

    We’ve had a big clear out at South Shields Sailing Club and should be able to accommodate a lot more campers!
