The Montgomery Model Boat Club (MMBC) is proud to announce that the 1st North American Nirvana Nationals will be held on May 4, 5, & 6, 2012 in beautiful Wynton Blount Cultural Park in Montgomery Alabama.
The name of the event, voted in by the club founders, is "Arrr Sea Pirates Regatta". The pond we will actually use is still undecided, but right now we are leaning toward our normal pond do to it's ease of launch/recovery.
This event will be open to all Nirvana sailors, AMYA membership is encouraged, but not mandatory to race. The boats will have to meet AMYA rules and pass inspection to race.
The plan is to hold a practice session Friday afternoon, and race on Saturday & Sunday. Steve Lang of SailRC.com will be attending and is promising something special for all attendees. Nirvana Class Secretary, John Malek will also be here live and in person from Chicago.
A small entrance fee may be needed to cover costs; more information will be forth coming as we get more details worked out. If you have any questions/comments, feel free fire away.
Robert “Crash” Franklin, Commodore MMBC
