Nonsuch Association
The Nonsuch® is the inspiration of Gordon Fisher, who with yacht designer Mark Ellis,
approached George Hinterhoeller to build a comfortable cruising boat. This idea has
produced over 950 boats from 22' to 36' that are enjoyed today by sailors of all types.
Nonsuches are unique as are the sailors that love them.

The International Nonsuch Association is committed to the enjoyment of Nonsuch class
sailboat cruising, racing and general fellowship. It sponsors a biennial International Rendezvous,
maintains one-design control for fair and competitive racing within the class, provides unique
Nonsuch parts and services enabling INA members to maintain and protect their investment in a
high quality yacht. The association encourages and supports participation in our partner
Regional Associations who organize events close to where you sail.

TINA Rendezvous Kingston August 2016

EVEN THE BEST-LAID PLANS – this year’s Thousand Island Nonsuch Association (TINA) August 12-14 rendezvous planned for Kerr Bay was shuffled to Confederation Basin in Kingston due to the weather forecasts and thunderstorm warnings. Waking up to pounding rain, it was a stark contrast from the dry, very dry, weather experienced this summer. Crowded quarters and wet conditions don’t dampen the spirits of TINA sailors. Saturday cocktail hour included entertainment as Wes brought out his fiddle and with Brian on guitar sparked an impromptu jam session. So the question arises, how many sailors can you fit on/in a 30U cockpit/cabin when the rain begins to fall hard? The answer is over 20 with some lodged below. Note to skipper, the mast was raked back and the bow was clear of the waterline. Thank you Joel and Sandra for arranging and hosting this event. We felt the irony of the stormy weather conditions but dinner at the Merchant Tap House, Kingston was a happy occasion with a group of friends, a real party time. We had a blast. Following Saturday a reduced contingent did sail of to Kerr Bay and beyond.
