Steve Nicholson Trophy, 27th January 2018. ***Cancelled due to low water level.***

This is NSC's annual regatta in aid of Asthma Research UK in memory of Steve who died at a young age as the result of an asthma attack.

Traditionally Northampton Sailability have played a big part in making the event such a success.

Once again we have the opportunity to help with NSC's annual fund raiser in aid of Asthma Support UK. We need all sorts of help including safety boat drivers, helpers on the committee boats and shore crew.
