Notts County currently boasts one of the largest fleet of Scorpions in the UK, and has a three times Scorpion National Champion in its ranks.
Always interesting and, more often than not, exciting to sail the National Scorpion is a classic lightweight 14′ two person, three sail racing dinghy.
With it’s raking rig, the boat is good across a range of different crew weights, ages and ability, and is at home as much on the sea as on inland waters.
The class has an active association and www.Sailscorpion.co.uk is a useful starting point for help and advice. As well as having a classified section for second-hand gear & boats, there is a calendar of open & Nationals events and an on-line forum for all things Scorpion.
The Notts fleet are always happy to provide help and advice, and of course tuning guides and advice are also available from Pinnell & Bax, North and HD Sails’ web-sites.
Please keep your fleet captains up to date with your email address, as we provide regular updates on and off the water via the NCSC Scorpion Fleet Newsletter
The Scorpion Fleet takes prides in being the friendly fleet, and a warm welcome awaits you at Notts County.
