Bader Field, Atlantic City, N J, October 9, 10 &11

The Fall Wildwood blokart Sailing event is moving to Bader Field. After taking a poll of the Wildwood attendees who sail both sites it was unanimous that we have more sail time at Bader. No low tide time to work around and at Bader you can sail any wind direction with less wind. You can stay dry and no more sand to clean off your equipment. If someone still wants to sail the beach, low tide on Monday 10/13 is 1:30 PM, Brigantine is only 3 miles from Bader.

Bader has plenty of room for racing and practice dial up starts as well as plenty of room for individual sailing at the same time. There will be workshops on sailing  technique  and equipment.The runways and  tie down area are in excellent conditon. The only  problem you might have is wearing out tires if the wind is stong and you are pushing it.


I do pay a daily fee of $300.00 to rent the airport; attendees will be expected to chip in to cover the cost.

South West flies into Philadelphia (PHL), 64 miles from Bader Field. Atlantic City (ACY) airport is 10 miles away and has limited service.

Lodging:   There is a Knights Inn directly across from Bader Field. (It is within walking distance across the street) that is offering lodging for $59.00 a night + tax.

Knights Inn, 500 N. Albany Ave, (Black Horse Pike, Rt. 322) Atlantic City NJ 08401, call direct 609-348-1100. Mention North American Blokart Sailing.

A FEW MILES OUTSIDE Atlantic City on the same road with more amenities is the Comfort Inn, 7079 Black Horse Pike, West Atlantic City, NJ 08232-- $68.00 to $85.00 per night.


Please let me know if you plan to attend by October 5. Registration form and Liability sign off will be available on site.  The Jersey Boys are planning a few cookouts.  Sailors from NV, WI, CA and Canada are already planning to attend. Any question email.

This Spring we will be having our semi- annual blokart sailing event on the beaches of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest, NJ. Low Tide on Friday April 17 is at 1:06 PM, this is almost perfit timing for low tide, we should be able to sail from 10;00 AM to 5:PM.The group’s new set up location was excellent at Cressi Ave on the beach, which is the end of the Wildwood Boardwalk. A lot more people came down to observe the blokarts and ask questions at this location. As usual most of the sailors who had extra equipment brought it to share so that most people were who came for a demo ride were able to sail and other blokart owners who needed a bigger or smaller sail were able to borrow one. This is a North American Blokart Sailing Association (NABSA) official event with NABSA securing the permits and providing the liability insurance certificates to the city of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest. NABSA  All participants will be required to sign a waiver. Any questions contact "Fran PresidentNABSA" < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
