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.

FLAG BEARER and other tales

Notes from TINA rendezvous August 11, Kerr Bay off Amherst Island, Lake Ontario

A group of 8 Nonsuch boats met in Kerr Bay Friday afternoon. Following cocktails on Walrus V the group took dinghys to the Back Kitchen in Stella for a fish dinner. Our group of 16 was joined by another 12 TINA crew who had arrived by ferry. It was quite a crowd for this volunteer run not-for-profit restaurant. The fish fry was great and the fresh pies superb.


FLAG BEARER – traditionally factors contributing to falls from ladders include haste, sudden movement, or lack of attention, not to mention the ground moving under your feet (dinghy) but poor Dave disembarking from ‘Duck Soup’ lost his footing and grabbed their flagpole to catch himself. Sheered off at its base he landed less than gracefully, flag in hand. Cameras pulled out to relive the moment, handing the flag back to him for a photo opportunity, he then fell really hard into the bottom of the boat. Every one of us has had one of those embarrassing moments but Dave Bailey was a really good sport about this one.

Most of the group stayed on in Kerr Bay Saturday with another dinghy visit to the island. Sunday saw the group split up with some heading west to Waupoos, others back to Wolf Island and a couple returning to their home ports. All in all another great TINA event.
