I am looking into starting the summer season of Blokart sailing at Bader Field Thur., June 13. All the paper work and NABSA Insurance for 2019 has been approved by Atlantic City. if we have enough interest I would like to plan on sailing there every other week through the summer mainly on week days.
Again this year I would like to plan a 4 day event for early Oct.with the WI,CA and new England sailors joining us.
The cost of renting the site has remained the same $300.00 a day. We usually start sailing around 9:00AM and stay until dusk, as some people join us after work. I do appreciate a reply if you are planning on attending. Please fill out the attached 2019 Bader Field waiver and email it back to me or bring it with you, it is fillable PDF form, Thank You. You are welcome to bring guest to try sailing, they must also fill out a waiver.
Are you to wear out some tires and blow the rest of the Ivanpah dust off your equipment?
If you have any suggestions or comments please reply.
I will be sending out updates as we get closer to the date, checking to the wind forecast.

BADER FIELD OCT. 4-7, 2018


The Fall blokart Sailing event will be at Bader Field. Brigantine is only 3 miles from Bader Field if anyone wants to hit the beach. 
Bader has plenty of room for racing and practice dial up starts as well as plenty of room for individual sailing at the same time. New this year the event will also have a Team Enduro Race and possibly a individual enduro.There will be workshops on sailing  technique  and equipment.The runways and  tie down area are in excellent condition. The only  problem you might have is wearing out tires if the wind is strong and you are pushing it. 
I do pay a daily fee of $300.00 to rent the airport; attendees will be expected to chip in to cover site rental and other cost. 
 South West flies into Philadelphia (PHL), 64 miles from Bader Field. Atlantic City (ACY) airport is 10 miles away and has limited service. Newark is also a option for flying in.
