Hi All here is a post from Peter Saxton who is the event co ordinator 

 
Youth classes taster day to junior class sailors - if you have any questions, please  email.
 
When? Bank Holiday Monday 1st May.  Sailing sessions run from 1030 to about 1630.  
 
Where?  Grafham Water Sailing Club, Perry, Cambridgeshire PE28 0BU
 
Who’s organising it?  Grafham Water Sailing Club and the youth classes, with support from the RYA. 
 
Which boats?  29er, 420, Nacra 15 and Spitfire.  Each of the classes will be providing experienced helms/crews to help sail the boats if required.  There won’t be any Lasers, as people can usually arrange a trial sail in one of these boats at their home club etc.
 
How long will I get in a boat?  Sailing sessions are expected to last about 30 minutes or more, with some of the changeovers on the water by RIB, to save time.     
 
Whats does it cost?  Nothing for sailors - it’s free!
 
What do I do when I arrive at the Club?   Go to the ground floor cafe and sign-up for a session with one or more of the class representatives, on a 'first come first served' basis.
 
Do I need my own trapeze harness?  If you have one, bring it with you, but the classes will also have some spare harnesses available.
 
What else is going on at the Club?  It’s an Open Day as well, so there will be other activities, and the cafe will be open all day.
 
 
Regards
 
Peter

The UK 29er Class, in partnership with Schoolblazer, will be offering branded clothing for the summer events of 2017. You can order Worlds, Europeans or Nationals items.

After much discussion following the publication of the NOR for the Europeans the committee have decided to end our Nationals on Thursday night (17th August) to allow the large number of boats planning to attend both the Nationals and the Europeans to turn themselves around and travel to Quiberon ready for the start of the Europeans, which now begin measuring on Sunday 20th.

Congratulations to the RYA 2017 UK Youth National Champions:

Girls - Bella Fellows and Anna Sturrock

Boys - James Hammett and James Eales

Also well done to everyone that competed and for those that reached personal milestones.

The minutes from the 29er Class Committee Meeting held at the RYA Youth Championships at Hayling Island SC on 8th April 2017 are now available here.

You can view minutes of meetings and other class documents at any time via our website, by selecting 'Everything Else' -> 'Documents' from the main menu.

The NoR is up and it now looks like this is a 6 day event not a 4 day one as implied. 

This means measuring is now Sunday and Monday. Racing Tuesday - Sunday.

Come and sail in some of the most glorious scenery and join other Youth helms for 2 days of competitive sailing at the RYA NE Youth Championships. 

The survey is now closed and we will publish the results and any response to them shortly. 

All members of the Class Association should have an email called "29er News" which we aim to send out monthly updating on relevant issues to keep all informed of events/training etc

Sailwave Training

The RYA are planning to hold some Sailwave training during the Youth Nationals if there is demand. (This is the programme we and most classes/clubs use for sailing results).

The 29er Class is desperately short of helpers with knowledge of Sailwave which could impact our ability to effectively manage our GP events.

If you would like attend the teach in please email [email protected] directly with times in the week that would suit you.
