NABSA EAST COAST FALL BLOKART SAIL, 2018
BADER FIELD, ATLANTIC CITY,NJ OCTOBER 4 - 7
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.
