This will be the sixth national championships of the D-Zero Class and the first to be held away from the South Coast – a big vote of confidence in Scotland, and Largs as an International Sailing Venue.
The 2019 Nationals were held at the prestigious Weymouth Portland National Sailing Academy – site of the London Olympics Sailing Regatta.
Forty-three D-Zeros competed, with three Scots figuring in the top ten overall.

Scotland was voted unanimously as the location for the next Nationals at Largs Sailing Club on the basis that Largs SC is recognised as hi-quality sailing, extremely hospitable, venue. It has hosted four very popular D-Zero Scottish Championships; the 2019 event enjoying 17 entries, with boats travelling from all over the UK.
It is expected that the 2020 event will attract at least 45 boats with more than a dozen Scottish Entries. In the Scottish Year of Coasts and Waters we intend to make this one of the best and most enjoyable racing events that the fleet has experienced.
RSK, an international Engineering, Environmental and Support Services Group, have agreed to sponsor the event and the on water tracking is sponsored by Tunnocks. We are hoping that other Scottish companies will support the event to give a real Scottish Welcome and a taste of the best Scotland has to offer.
