Home Notice of Race Entry and SI Venue and Hotels Schedule Who's Coming

Welcome to the 2018 East Coast 12-Meter National Championship in Punta Gorda, Florida, November 8-10.

Dear Skippers and Friends of the EC12 Class:

Sun Coast Model Sailing Club (SCMSC) is in the midst of preparation for the 48th EC-12 Nationals. We are located in Charlotte County, Florida and sail at the South County Park in Punta Gorda. We have an excellent venue, not too big, not too small, plenty of parking close by and few trees and can sail from two sides of the pond depending on the wind direction. We also have two docks for ease of launching and retrieving your boats.

Punta Gorda has easy access to local beaches, many fine restaurants and points of interest: Edison and Ford Winter Estates and Museum, river cruises and waterfront shopping are just some that come to mind. But best of all: come enjoy Southwest Florida’s November weather. By then the rainy season is over and the average daytime temperature is a balmy 78 degrees.

We will have staff on hand to help with information about restaurants and activities. We further expect to have a listing of hotels and available discount available in the coming weeks.

The three day event promises to highlight the best of the fleet’s sailing skills. Coffee, donuts and lunch will be provided each day. The banquet and presentation of awards will be held Saturday evening at a nearby country club.

We are looking forward to meeting one and all and enjoying some very competitive racing.
