2012 Olympic Venue Filling Up.


Want to get local knowledge for the next Olympic sailing venue? Well you’ll have plenty of chances as the event diary of the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, the venue for the 2012 Olympic sailing events, is rapidly filling up its calendar for the next couple of years.

Events already booked range from the IWA Junior, Youth and Masters Windsurfing Championships, the Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series, ISAF Olympic Series, numerous dinghy championships and a visit from the Farr 45’s.

With an ever increasing array of events being hosted at The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), the calendar is filling up fast although there is still plenty of time to reserve a time for your event at this prestigious venue.

The variety of events held at WPNSA, the venue for the sailing competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games is rapidly expanding with new additions to this year’s calendar including the IWA Junior, Youth and Masters Windsurfing Championships, the Endurancelife Coastal Trail Series and a visit from the Farr 45’s as part of their national circuit.

Following the development works that were completed in November 2008, the facilities at the Academy now lend themselves perfectly to this wider spectrum of events. The new development works include a mini marina with a total capacity for 125 boats making it an excellent venue for hosting yacht racing events.

John Tweed, Chief Executive of WPNSA comments;

‘Following the completion of the development works in November 2008 we are delighted to be able to offer an increased amount of first class facilities to both dinghy and yachting Class Associations. The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy events calendar is filling up fast in the run up to 2012 and we look forward to welcoming existing event holders and prospective Class Associations’.
