This Spring we will be having our semi- annual blokart sailing event on the beaches of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest, NJ. Low Tide on Friday April 17 is at 1:06 PM, this is almost perfit timing for low tide, we should be able to sail from 10;00 AM to 5:PM.The group’s new set up location was excellent at Cressi Ave on the beach, which is the end of the Wildwood Boardwalk. A lot more people came down to observe the blokarts and ask questions at this location. As usual most of the sailors who had extra equipment brought it to share so that most people were who came for a demo ride were able to sail and other blokart owners who needed a bigger or smaller sail were able to borrow one. This is a North American Blokart Sailing Association (NABSA) official event with NABSA securing the permits and providing the liability insurance certificates to the city of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. NABSA All participants will be required to sign a waiver. Any questions contact "Fran PresidentNABSA" <
LODGING INFORMATION; Most of the blokart group stays at the Adventure Oceanfront Inn and we were very satisfied with the location and accommodations. It is located at Cressi Ave. on the beach right at the start of Wildwood Crest where we set up to go blokart sailing. The rooms are much larger and we just rolled our blokarts into their garage for overnight storage. Most of us when down to the Shalimar Sat. night to join the kite buggiers for the cookout. Lodging is still available at the Shalimar.

2015 REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN REGISTRATION CLOSES MARCH 8
The 2015 event is planned to be 7 days of sailing a mix of 4 days of casual sailing that anyone sail the entire Ivanpah Dry Lake or sail the practice course that will be set up for those that have the need to pass other blokart sailors. The North American Blokart Sailing Championships will also be held during 3 days of racing using IBRA rules. The fleet will be divided into 2 groups racing at separate times. Racing competitors must be on site for weight in and Scrutineering Saturday March 28. Those you are not racing will have the rest of the dry lake to sail on. Rumor is that we will have some International attendees this year; they can't stay away from possibly one of the best land sailing sites in the world.
There will be two group meals, a welcome dinner on Saturday March 28 and a Awards dinner on Wednesday April 1, in the past we have had Turkey and prime Rib dinners. For those planning on eating at the camp site other nights it has been suggested that different groups organize a dinner, buying the food, cooking it and cleaning up, they can use NABSA’s cooking equipment.
USBLM no longer requires individual permits if you plan on sailing or camping on Ivanpah Dry Lake before or after the event.
Membership renewal can be done right on the event registration form or on the nabsa.org web site.
The location is 40 miles from Las Vegas off of Interstate 15 at the CA/NV border. A group rate for lodging will be arranged at the Primm Valley Casino which borders Ivanpah Dry Lake. The rate should be around $37.00 a week night and $80.00 Fri and Sat night. South West Airlines allows 2 free bags, start looking for good fares now.
