3 N1SCO Races scheduled for the 2018 season!
N1SCO returns to England in 2018 with 3 stand alone UK Championships. The One Design Racing class where all paddlers race identical boards to keep racing fair and affordable has now grown into the largest SUP racing class in the UK. N1SCO Championships feature multi discipline racing where competitors get a chance to try sprints, slalom style and more traditional long distance races all in one day to decide their overall standing. Racing is focused on fun competition which is open to all experience levels. To reflect this venues are chosen that allow racing in sheltered waters close to the shore and in areas where there is plenty to do for the whole family.
Venues voted as favorites by the paddlers make a return to the calendar with Emsworth and Swanage hosting the Spring Championships and National Championships respectively. Topping off the bill will be Nottingham which is a new venue for the year and will see N1SCO venture further North to where some of the biggest N1SCO SUP clubs are based. Whether paddling or not, all three venues will offer up close and personal racing so spectators will be very welcome. Competitors can enter with their own equipment or can opt for rental equipment provided by Naish UK but this is limited so is likely to sell out first. All events will be capped at 100 paddlers and are expected to sell out to full capacity. Entry is live at www.N1SCO.co.uk along with information on the racing and venues. Championship dates are;
- N1SCO UK Spring Championships – May 19, Emsworth
- N1SCO UK National Championships – June 16/17, Swanage
- N1SCO Inland Championships – July 7, Nottingham
June 10 & 11, 2017, Swanage, UK – The countdown is on for the N1SCO European Championships. In less than ten days hundreds of paddlers will gather to race on the Naish ONE 12’6″ inflatable stand up board in one of the most fun events in all stand up paddling.
This will be the second event in a three-round race series happening across the UK. The first event, in Emsworth, was graced by beautiful weather and hundreds of participants. From hardcore paddlers to first-time racers, great times were had by all. N1SCO events are all about fun and providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere for all participants and if Emsworth was any indication, Swanage should be one incredible event that is not be missed.
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. While there will be Naish ONE 12’6″ boards available for participants to use, organizers are encouraging racers bring their own boards, paddles and leashes if possible as available boards are limited.
See you in Swanage!

In just over two weeks we will be welcoming N1SCO paddlers from many countries to the N1SCO European Championship, beautiful Swanage bay is calling!
We would love for you to join us but would like to remind you of a couple of deadlines.
Tomorrow (26th May) is the deadline for entry if you would like a free entry pack including event T-Shirts, beer tokens, Pure Recharge Smoothie and special offers. After the 26th you can still enter but you will not qualify for the entry pack as we need time to prepare printing etc etc.
Entry with hire board included (for those of you who do not own a Naish One) is very nearly full so if you plan to join us but do not have a board, please don’t delay and get entered to secure one of the last available boards. Once they are gone, entry will only be possible if you have a Naish One to bring with you.
Online registration closes on June 8th but until then, got to http://n1sco.co.uk/events/5/uk-n1sco-national-championships-swanage/ and get your ticket there!
Looking forward to seeing you all in Swanage soon!
