Zhik & Coast Watersports Join The Scorpions for this years National Championships

The National Scorpion Association have joined forces with Zhik & Coast Waterports for this years National Championships at Lyme Regis Sailing Club



Both Zhik & Coast Watersports will be helping the class out with prizes at this years Nationals and with nearly a bumper 60 entrants (which is our highest entry since Tenby 2011 and I would note there is still plenty of time to surpass the 63 entrants we has then)

We are also looking at possibly one of the most competitive National Championships of recent years with many top names already signed up and one or two that are yet to fully confirm.

We are also looking to shake things up down the fleet as well with a few changes to the Silver & Bronze fleets as well as one or two new prizes up for grabs! This, as well as the confirmed Social Program will be available on our website very soon. So watch this space!

Nationals 2020
John Purdie

John is a relative late comer to sailing and even later getting into sailing dinghies. Despite having a lifelong fascination with most things boat, his first sailing experience didn’t come until 1999 at the age of 17 when he spent two weeks aboard the 135′ 340 ton, STA Sir Winston Churchill, as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Scheme. Over the last 12 years John has logged more than 15,000 mainly blue water miles with various tall ships and as a volunteer with the Tall Ships Youth Trust (the modern day Sail Training Association) 72′ Challenger Fleet, crossing the Atlantic both ways and competing in the 2011 Rolex Fastnet. After floating around in other classes for a few years, John found the Scorpion in 2011 and has never looked back, competing (as crew) in the last two Nationals and regularly on the National Circuit. John is based just outside Chester, Cheshire.
