After sailing on Saturday we have 2 brief talks:

  • A “welcome to the Class” from our new chairman which will tell our newcomers all about the class, what we offer and how to get involved in training etc.
  • We also have some past 29er sailors who are now in 49ers who will discuss their experiences of life after 29er and what they learned.

Following this we have a meal laid on at WPNSA and the bar will be open. This should be a great opportunity to say hello to old friends and meet new people. Tickets for the meal are available on the event website at £10.50 each.

Are you in an all girl team? If so, the class has now arranged for some all girls training, run by female coaches, targeted towards female sailors with female specific techniques and setups. This is open to any all girls crew whatever your experience level, from first time in the boat to front of the fleet race level. Part of the aim is to build up a support and friendship amongst the girls in the fleet that will carry on through their time in the class.

The first weekend planned is on the 21st/22nd of October at Draycote Water SC, and there are also two more dates in planning.

If you have any questions then please click here to email Sally Bristow for help.

At the International 29er Council meeting at Long Beach a decision was made to set up a new Technical Committee to look at Strategic changes to the boat (ie carbon mast) and the UK Class have proposed someone for that committee. This Committee is expected to report back in summer 2018 (I think ?) so while the carbon rig is being discussed it seems unlikely to happen in the very near term. More likely in a 1-3 year horizon and perhaps not at all - there remain plenty of technical and financial issues to deal with - nonetheless the idea is being investigated fully.

The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce that Arthur and Cheryl Allen have been granted an RYA Community Award in the Lifetime Commitment category.

The minutes from the 29er Class Committee Meeting held at Hayling Island SC on 15 July 2017 are now available here.
