SNECCA

Scotland & North of England Catamaran Class Association

Sponsored By tartanmarine.co.uk

SNECCA (Scotland & North of England Catamaran Class Association) has been running since 1992 . The Association was started by a group of like minded catamaran sailors from clubs all over Scotland and North East England who wanted to enjoy catamaran class racing and promote catamaran sailing by entering the same open events. Since 1992, numerous venues have been visited including Royal Tay, Largs, Aberdeen & Stonehaven, Findhorn, Helensburgh, Port Edgar, Peterhead, Kielder, South Shields, Dalgety Bay and Loch Lomond - to name but a few. The aim is quite simple - to achieve quality class racing against other catamarans on a handicap basis and to encourage other catamaran sailors to travel and take part. Those new to catamaran racing and many beginners that have attended SNECCA travellers have found the guidance from their fellow SNECCA sailors to be invaluable. If you have recently purchased a catamaran or are interested in finding out more about racing these great boats in this region please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you at one of the forthcoming fixtures in due course.

Some classes that have sailed in SNECCA to date, in no order:
Tornado - all varieties,
