Hi All please see the below regarding Nick Simes from his family,.
The funeral will be on Thursday 22nd June, full details at Nicks tribute site http://nick.simes.muchloved.com
Please do pass on this information as you see fit, no problem if you want to post this on the website also. The family will be pleased to see you all attend.
David Ibbotson and David Sturrock have been working hard in developing the event at Largs, with numbers reducing the decision has been made to change the event to tailor to the sailors able to attend. With this, a mix of training on Saturday, Racing on Sunday and further training on Monday with the opportunity to extend to Tuesday if sailors wish .
If you are a transitioning sailor from a Junior Class this event will be perfect for you to get lots of input from the Coaches and David and David, please pass on and share to any prospective teams . Contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance or myself Andre on 07712650806 and we will happily answer any questions . A number of boats are signed up and there is room for more, i stress that this will be a great opportunity to leap frog some of the hurdles sailing a 29er can be in the early stages for new teams.
The minutes and reports from our 2016 AGM are now available on our website.
All 29er UK Class members should have an email copy of the May version of 29er newsletter.
This covers a few notable points - one of which is a reminder that the entry fee for the Nationals steps up shortly - why pay more than you need to ?
After much discussion following the publication of the NOR for the Europeans the committee have decided to end our Nationals on Thursday night (17th August) to allow the large number of boats planning to attend both the Nationals and the Europeans to turn themselves around and travel to Quiberon ready for the start of the Europeans, which now begin measuring on Sunday 20th.
Congratulations to the RYA 2017 UK Youth National Champions:
Girls - Bella Fellows and Anna Sturrock
Boys - James Hammett and James Eales
Also well done to everyone that competed and for those that reached personal milestones.
