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.

Abaco Bahamas Nonsuch Rendezvous
March 12 to 20, 2019

Are you sailing to or in the Bahamas area this winter?

Patricia (Tutti) Phelan N30U #239 - Keltic Kat has proposed a rendezvous in Abaco Bahamas

This will be more of a "Cruisers" rather than a "Racers" Rendezvous and the program will vary according to tide times and wind speeds.  Entering the harbours often requires high tide even for boats with a 5 foot draft.  There will be one real race day with the Hope Town Sailing Club since they race every second Wed. if the weather is suitable.  Sometimes the race is postponed so there will not be a set schedule for events.  Only the dates will be definite with the opening event on March 12.

A proposed schedule follows. Also there is a Cruising Advice article attached.

Contact Tutti Phelan if you are interested in joining the group


Partnership with Quantum Sails

The INA maintains partnerships with suppliers in areas we believe are essential to our members. Mike Quill Rigging Ltd, Stainless Outfitters Inc, Genco as well as Harris & Ellis Yachts are organizations that have a long history of providing excellent service to Nonsuch owners.

We are pleased to announce Quantum Sails has now joined this group.  Quantum has provided sails to many Nonsuch owners over the years and their track record is exemplary.  Recent results for Nonsuch's sailing in the Mackinaw Race these past years are testimony to how well their sails perform.  With sail lofts across North America chances are there is a loft near by to service your needs.  This link will help you locate your nearest Quantum loft


 Beginning this year, we will be offering a sail buying program similar to the swim platform program that Ron Schryver has been running successfully for several years.  Group orders will be taken in the fall and production will take place in the November to March time period, although anytime throughout the year is always an option as well.  As these are custom products with numerous design and feature options, it is not a one size fits all offering. Quantum will work with you to personalize your sails to fit your sailing needs.  INA prices reflect this partnership and the number of sails ordered each year.  Connecting our buying power with Quantum we believe you will be getting world class products and services at an excellent price.

 Doug Burtner at Quantum Sails Rochester is the Quantum Sails contact for all Nonsuch needs and has extensive experience designing and delivering Nonsuch sails. He was making Nonsuch Sails for 15 years with one of the original sailmakers on Lake Ontario that specialized in these sails since 1981.  Doug can be reached at dburtner@quantumsails.com or (585) 342 5200.  Please contact him directly. He will answer any questions you may have and will co-ordinate all aspects of your order no matter where you sail.
