The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce a new partnership with the John Merricks Sailing Trust (JMST) to provide 29er coaching bursaries aimed at encouraging the development of 29er sailing at a local level. The JMST will partner with the UK 29er Class to match the funding of a new coaching Bursary. This will double the number of potential awards from an initial 4 to 8.
 These 8 awards will offer 29er club fleets the opportunity to have a  29er coach for a day at their club and encourage growth of local coaching. The UK 29er Class is very proud to partner with the JMST in this way and we hope a large number of 29er local fleets as possible will get in touch. John was a huge supporter of youth sailing and we hope that this grant will help celebrate that as well as giving a lift to our local 29er club fleets. 
 For more information about the JMST go to http://www.jmst.org.uk/.

A vegetarian or Gluten free option will also be available. Please can you book in advance, by the Wednesday prior to the event, by emailing [email protected] with details of how many meals you would like and whether you would like vegetarian or gluten free options .
Also, if any competitors wish to come back the following weekend to compete on the Lord Birkett then the club is happy for boats and trailers to be left on site for the intervening week.

Training for the 29er

The Andrew Simpson Centre is in possession of up to three 29ers that can be hired with a coach for new comers to the Class. The cost is approx £160 for a day for two sailors and this is an excellent way for those new to the Class to get experience in the boat. For more information please contact Dan Hallam at

Harken GP 6 - Grafham Water SC

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
