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.




Georgian Bay Nonsuch Association - Rendezvous Update 2016

Sailing as some say is 99% boredom and 1 % terror . Well ,we experienced the 1 % on Friday evening as boats gathered for re activating of the Georgian Bay Association. At 7.30 a squall came through lasting 30 minutes . For myself it was the third squall in 16 years of sailing and the worst with intense wind , spray and  1/2 in hail. Ron and Dianne on Alphawaves dragged anchor and returned back to their marina and rejoined on Sunday those that were left . Because we were all pretty rattled none of us were up to sailing on Saturday and Sunday morning so we replaced time with on shore gatherings which was a chance to get reacquainted  with older association members and new. I think we can say with confidence that the GB association has renewed itself .

We were fortunate to have Bill and Lola Wheeler, past organizer for the association who lent their history and experience to our discussions .
Also participating was 94 year old Angus Robertson who single handedly sailed his 26 and manually dropped his anchor ! Angus kept us all entertained with ,his life experiences which he is currently writing . Thanks Angus .
