The International Sonar Class Association and Noroton Yacht Club are pleased to announce that the 2018 Sonar North American Championship will be held at Noroton Yacht club in Darien, CT on Sept. 13-16, 2018.

Over 40 boats are expected for four days of fun and fast sailing at one of the premier sailing venues and legendary one-design racing clubs on the East Coast. With direct access to Long Island Sound, coupled with September’s warm water and traditional 10-15 knot SW breeze, Noroton Yacht Club provides the perfect venue for a championship of this venerable Class. Sonars charters and limited housing are available. See NOR for details.

Noroton YC has excellent hoisting facilities to speed up launching and hauling, and will provide moorings for all competitors at no cost. There are many hotels within a 5-10 minute drive of the club. Noroton is also only five minutes from Interstate 95, and a 50-minute train ride into Manhattan, for those interested in pre- or post-regatta sightseeing.

Shoreside, Noroton YC’s new clubhouse will play host to a variety of social events, including a Thursday night welcome reception, Friday Night BBQ, and Saturday Night Dinner Dance.

Regatta gear can be purchased from apparel sponsor Team 1 Newport.

Two weekends after the Sonar North American’s, Noroton YC will host the annual Kirby Cup — The Sonar Class Association Team Race Championship.
