About Us

NOSCA was formed in 1987 by a group of evening class students studying navigation. It seeks to foster and promote the sport of offshore cruising, and to provide opportunities for social meetings, recreation and training.

Whatever your interest in sailing, from novice to yacht master, from boat owner to competent crew you will receive a warm welcome.

Membership is available to anyone over 18 - either as an individual or for joint membership.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month in or around Northampton for a social event. These include talks either from visiting speakers or club members, quizzes, photographic competitions, hands-on demonstrations of equipment, treasure-hunts, BBQs and dinners. For further details see  the Events page.

Members receive a monthly newsletter, the front page of the two most recent editions are available to download on the Newsletter page as a pdf document.
