A reminder that today 28th July is the last date for registrations for the Nationals - Entry now at 70 boats.

The deadline for the Europeans entry is 7th August. 

We are now just a couple of weeks from the start of the Nationals. Entry closes on 28th July so if you are thinking of coming then please enter as soon as possible.

For those going to Quiberon there remain quite a few roles available for helpers at the Europeans including press boat driver, safety boat and course safety leader as well as shore  asked roles.

If you want to help go to the event website and the link is self evident.

We are currently working on getting a trailer(s) to take boats to the Europeans in 2018 in Helsinki.

To get on the waiting list please pay a £100 deposit – fully refundable until 1 November 2017. By that time we will have certainty over the payment schedule and cost – we expect the cost will be in the range £750-£900 a boat for the return journey.


We also expect that a portion of the cost will need to be paid in November with further payment likely early in the New Year. It is highly likely full payment will be required before Easter 2018. (We are in negotiations with a few providers and want to understand the potential demand).

We hope to be able to satisfy all those that want to go but will go down the list in date and time order of those on the deposit list. Anyone wishing to drop off the list at any time before 1 November 2017 will get a full refund.

Click here to get added to the waiting list (£100 deposit required)

If you are interested in attending the HK Worlds in Jan 2018 and want to discss shipping please be aware that time will move on fairly quickly wtih shipping of boats in only 3/4 months time. So far only 3 boats have expressed interest and we need to get an idea of the likely numbers shortly.

Please do chat to Nia at the HISC GP or contact her on [email protected] if you want to find out more.

Volunteer to help at the Nationals

The 29er Class is looking for a new Head Coach to oversee the Class Invitational and Open Training programme.

We’ve put together a combined North England/Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland training and racing program for 2017/18.

It is with great sadness that we convey the news that Nick Simes passed away earlier this week.
Without being an official committee member Nick has done more than anyone to help transport UK 29ers around the country and the world - always with a smile on his face - getting young sailors on the water often in far away places.
 He has also been a huge help to almost everyone around the boat park over the last few years. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family.
Somehow coleslaw will never be the same without Nick being around.
 Details of the funeral will follow when we have them. Paul Hammett
