Following an incident of entanglement at the 29er World Championships in Long Beach the Class President set up a panel to review the incident and one of the first recommendations from that review was that the Class Rules be changed to make it mandatory for all sailors to carry a waterproof / Solas whistle. Barry Johnson has now got this rule change through World Sailing and it was published yesterday and effective yesterday.
The UK Class must abide by the class rules. Therefore we would ask that all sailors attempt to comply. However, given the short notice, the penalty for infringement this weekend will be limited to a warning. The rule will be enforced at future events and therefore all sailors should ensure that they have a whistle on a lanyard in their buoyancy aids in the future.
Please note that there has been a change to the SSIs for the Ovington Inlands. You can download the updated version from the event pages, or by clicking on the link below.
You can view minutes of meetings and other class documents at any time via our website, by selecting 'Everything Else' -> 'Documents' from the main menu.

The SSIs for the Ovington Inlands have now been published. Please note that the 1st Warning Signal on Saturday is at 11.25 (not 11.55 as is our standard practice).
We are looking for volunteers to help both on the water and ashore at our Harken Grand Prix 3 at Rutland SC on 2nd and 3rd December.
Our events can't be run without the generous support of volunteers and parents and it gives us all a great view of the action whilst providing a vital service to provide a safe environment for our sailors.
We will be holding a Christmas Party this year at Rutland SC on Saturday 2nd December. There will be a meal at 7pm, followed by a Disco and Karaoke for sailors until 11pm, and drinks in the bar for parents and supporters.
Tickets are £15 each, and all sailors and parents (both past and present) are welcome.
If you have a Rib you can provide for Events throughout the year or are willing to either helm or crew a Rib for events either as safety or race management, we will in future be posting a volunteer sheet to each event page for you to sign up.
If you have a Rib you would be willing to provide, expenses are available per the Rib Policy.
Events can't be run without the generous support of volunteers and parents and it gives us all a great view of the action whilst providing a vital service to provide a safe environment for our sailors.
