International 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.




Lake Ontario Nonsuch Association

Spring Planning meeting


The LONA event held April 30,2016 at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club brought together 26 Nonsuch sailors from western Lake Ontario and the surrounds. Some of the INA Board were able to attend this event and share ideas from other regional associations. Organizer Joe Biro indicated that the LONA is back in operation and is working on future events. Along with socializing the group initiated the planning for a LONA Rendezvous to take place August 19-20, 2016 meeting at RHYC and sailing to points around Hamilton Harbour. Watch for more information about this event coming soon under the Regional Association tab LONA page.
