19 June 2017 : use of non-class legal daggerboards and rudders
Due to a delay of the delivery of new original Nacra 15 rudders and daggerboards, some new boats are delivered by Nacra 15 factory with temporary other rudders and daggerboards (original from Nacra F16 or Nacra 17).
Sailors with a new boat with non original Nacra 15 rudders and daggerboards are allowed to use the temporary rudders and daggerboards delivered by Nacra factory until the original parts are delivered by Nacra. As soon as the original rudders and daggerboard are delivered it is for a boat owner/sailor not longer allowed to use the temporary rudders and daggerboards.
During use of temporary daggerboards the maximum used depth of the boards must be the same like the original Nacra 15 daggerboards: length is 143,5 cm from tip to bolt rope hole [centre] measured on the outside of the board [biggest curve]
On behalf of the Inernational Nacra 15 Class Association,

7 May 2017 : sailing conform Class Rules
Now racing is started, be sure your boat will be 100% conform the Nacra 15 Class rules! During coming events spotchecks will be done to make sure all boats will be conform the class rules!
Also be sure that all parts on board are original coming from Nacra factory to make sure everybody is sailing with the same stuff and we have an equal playing field!
17 December 2016 : “Post from the President!!
“As we’re all aware, deliveries of the Nacra 15 are greatly anticipated although currently we’re all having to be patient. After meeting with NACRA SAILING (manufacturer) only this week we have been informed that the new factory facility is being brought on-line just as soon as possible.
Unfortunately these things can take a little longer than hoped but the key thing is here Quality. We are all acutely aware that the build quality of all our new boats has to be that of the highest level to meet both expectation and function. The new factory facility and production team can deliver this. Although potentially frustrating, the attention to these initial construction details are vital to the the quality end product we all want for the years to come. Currently the next batch of Nacra 15s is now expected end of March 2017 and customer orders will be immediately fulfilled from that point on.
It is so important to get the quality right as with the first Nacra 15s already delivered. We’re all in it for the long term.
Additionally your International Nacra 15 Class association is working hard behind the scenes on clarifying event schedules, an on-line membership joining facility, and helping National class associations getting up and running… lots to do, lots to look forward to, exciting times.
All the best,
International Nacra 15 Class Peresident
