After 12 months of waiting the 38th NACRA National Titles  wrapped up on 5 Jan 2017.

 Congratulations to all winners and a very big thank you to the LCSC race committee for running such a professional event.

In total 62 NACRA' entered  with the largest fleets being 5.8, F18 and 4.5's.  Great to see some 5.0's race as well, (need to get some more of these boats back on the water as they are a perfect Parent/ Child boat and very rewarding to sail with their new Sq Top.)

A special thank you to our naming rights sponsors Catcovers.com.au who provided, prizes, trophies and merchandise for the event, and our other sponsors Ronstan, Fastway Couriers and Brisbane Catamaran Centre for their contribution.

Full results can be found here  

The next national titles will be held in WA where we will hold the first Open National Title for the newly introduced NACRA 15.    More information on this event will be provided shortly.
