We are looking for volunteers to blog from the Committee boat at this weekend’s Rutland GP. It is very straightforward (I promise!) and you get a great view of the racing from the water. Please let me know if anyone could do Saturday or Sunday. Just to explain our reason for blogging is not only for the interest of the spectators on shore but is an obligation to our sponsors Harken who provide the Class with prizes.
Many thanks, Suzie [email protected]
We have reached the entry limit of 50.
If you wish to come please enter and join the waiting list ASAP and we will do our best to try to accommodate as many as we can.
Please see below regarding P3 Girls Training and UK Youth Squad (pdf link below re what P3 is)
(Questions to Sara Turner / Roy McCubbin not the Class please)
The RYA has invited some senior 29er girls to P3 All Girls 29er training.
We continue to work towards the development of all sailors and feel that there is an opportunity to develop our existing programme and our intention is to train the boys/mixed and girls teams in a slightly different training environment.
This P3 training group is specifically aimed at teams intending to progress beyond 29er and into the 49erFX, our intention is to have two groups going into the winter of 2016, one group will be all-girls P3 training group and the other will be boys/mixed 29er UKYS.
For the girls group, training will take place approximately once per month at weekends. The girls will train alongside the boys/mixed 29er UKYS at half term camps.
Half term camps for both boys and girls will be Riva Del Garda in October 2016 and UK based in February 2017.
The all-girls P3 group will continue past the UK Youth Nationals in April towards the summer internationals with the intention of having support at the 29er Europeans in Quiberon, Northern France.
The boys/mixed 29er UKYS will train at half term camps and through their own bespoke HPC training plan.
Teams continued support and review will be appraised at the normal quarterly review points in December, April, July and September.
The RYA have asked us to make sailors aware that the Secondary selector for the RYA 29er UK Youth Squad is now the Rutland GP 24/25 September NOT Weymouth 8/9 October.
This change is to allow more time for those selected to formulate travel plans for Lake Garda where some training is planned.
Notice of Selection here;
The RYA have asked the class to post the document below on their behalf regarding a Squad Training Camp and the 29er Eurocup at Riva del Garda.
Congratulations to Crispin Beaumont / Tom Darling and Emily Covell / Hannah Bristow as 29er representatives for Team GBR at the Youth Worlds in New Zealand at the end of 2016.
A reminder that 29er Youth Squad Applications are open and up on line. You also need to attend the fitness tests Saturday 3rd September.
