So glad you are thinking of coming. We have a super special event planned. Below you will find information on sailing in Jacksonville, the Florida Yacht Club, other things to do in Jax, housing options, schedule, child care, and links to other important things like the Notice of Race and registration.
Jacksonville and the Florida Yacht Club are great places for thistle nationals, for adults and kids alike. There is plenty of parking, an outdoor pool, and, for the adults, a bar to got with it. In May, the weather should be fantastic.
There are also plenty of hoists and it is a short sail to the sailing area. Ohh, and plenty of space for parking, etc.
