Training for the 29er
The Andrew Simpson Centre is in possession of up to three 29ers that can be hired with a coach for new comers to the Class. The cost is approx £160 for a day for two sailors and this is an excellent way for those new to the Class to get experience in the boat. For more information please contact Dan Hallam at
Centre - 01305 457 400
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.
