We are fast approaching the deadline when the entry fee for both the 29er UK Nationals and the 29er Worlds steps up - 1 June for both events.
The entry fee for the 29er Worlds, to be sailed July 25-30 in Medemblik, NED will increase on June 1. The International Class expect this to be a very large World championship and the earlier we can get our sailors to register, the better the organizers can work on logistics to accommodate everyone. Website & registration: www.29erworlds.org
The entry fee for the UK Nationals that are at Torbay 6-12 August also steps up on 1 June. Entry www.29er.org.uk.
