Welcome to the Starling Class Website
NI Champs 2015
Starling Nth Island Champs at New Plymouth in January 10-11th. NOTE closing date for normal entries is this Friday 19th Dec. After that it will cost you $30 more. The NOR and Entry Form (at the end of the NOR) is here.
For those wishing to attend the coaching clinic in January - if you were one of the 20 who sent in an expression of interest you have until Saturday 20th to send in your entry form. If you obtained an entry form without sending an expression of interest you are on the waiting list which is now 6 long. If you haven't done either of those things you have probably missed out. I will be in touch with the people concerned after the 20th.
If you are a Starling coach you may be interested in a "Coaches clinic" YNZ will be running on the evening of Friday 23rd January at Wakatere. This follows the completion of the coaching clinic. YNZ are keen to have the more senior coaches attend so if that's not you but you have one at your club please try and persuade them to come along. I have a short list at present but we need more.

2014 Parua Bay Nationals
The 2014 Starling Nationals at Parua Bay concluded with the following winners. The event was held in disappointingly light and shifty conditions that tried both the competitors and the race management officials!

February 2014 Update
Changes to the Class Rules
The Northland Champs are being run out of the Bay Of Islands YC in Waitangi. Optimists are included in the regatta for those two class families.
2014 Nationals at Parua Bay
Also on the website is the Measurement declaration. This is a class requirement. Once again dont leave it to the last minute. There will be plenty of post race measurement to make sure boats are being sailed in "class trim" and as at previous events the SCA scales will be available to check your boat prior to racing. Clubs could help by organising a Nationals entry evening and get these things ticked off.
Parua Bay is an ideal venue for a National development fleet event. Those Starling sailors with National's experience need to encourage prospective Starling sailors to come to this event. They may not even receive these newsletters so they are relying on you to pass on the information. This year will prove or disprove the need for a development fleet. There is quite a lot of work to organise a separate course.
SCA AGM The AGM will be held at Parua Bay on 25th April at 6.00pm. Please keep this time clear so you can attend the meeting. We endeavour to keep the boring stuff to a minimum, leaving more time to discuss matters we are all interested in.
