KSSA Promoting Youth Sailing in Kent



The KSSA Memorial Awards

The Ernie Large Sailing Award - is for a person with a project “to help extend their horizons – push the limits in sailing”.

The Nesham Driver Memorial Award - is a recent addition to the KSSA Awards to mark the contribution of John Nesham and Jack Driver to youth sailing and life afloat. The award is made to young people who are “striving to achieve something special in sailing and where a little extra help would make all the difference.”

Another of our founder members back in the 1950’s was Dennis Littlefield.

The Association holds a Memorial Race at our mid summer coastal regatta in his honour, raising funds towards the Kent Air Ambulance.


If you would like to contribute to these Memorial Awards or know of young people who could be proposed for an award – please contact the KSSA secretary at secretary@kssa.co.uk
