The Met Office wind forecast for this coming weekend has become worse during today. There is only a small potential window of opportunity for racing on Saturday, with too much wind due to arrive by late Saturday afternoon. As a result, the Ovington Inlands will not be taking place this weekend.
All the dates for the 2016 Eurocup events are now published. These can be found on the International 29er class website.
The Eurocup NOS is also available on the documents section of the UK 29er website under subsection Racing Events (where you will also find a range of other 29er documents).
Congratulations to Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling winners of the Europcup event at Lake Garda from the Slovenian pair that finished 4th at the Worlds. James Grummett and Daniel Budden finished 5th overall to leave 2 GBR boats in the top 5.

We get a lot of emails from people asking us questions about how to do things or find information on the website.
A big one is "How do I enter when I'm wait listed". This document has how your pages should look when you go to enter the event. If you do not see the pages like these then it means you are not yet able to enter the event from the waitlist.
