The SSIs for this weekend's Harken GP at Grafham Water SC have now been published. You can find them on our website here:

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

We are inviting UK 29er Class members to put in a request for one of 5 coaching days to take place from 1 August until 30 November 2016.

For more information email [email protected] and Lisa will provide you with an information pack and application form.

1) 13th May (today) for ordering the Zhik jackets

2) 24th May deadline to enter the Grafham GP

3) 31st May deadline for the reduced entry fee for the Nationals to step up (why pay more when you don't need to ?).
