The 29er committee is planning some small changes to the racing season 2016/2017 that starts in September 2016.
This will involve a slightly reduced number of National GP events (to 8 from 10) and more clarity on the location of events drawing on the recent class survey.
There be a new National Sprint racing finals in March 2017.
Qualification to that new event will come from club based sprint racing events.
Details are available at the link below. We will be actively seeking clubs to host those sprint events over the coming months.
The 29er Class needs some volunteers at the Dinghy Show (5/6 March) willing to spend a couple of hours helping with enquiries.
We will be providing free tickets for entry and a 29er class polo for volunteers. Help is needed from sailors and parents on Saturday afternoon.

The entry fee is £285 and includes on shore activities as well as the sailing. After the 31st May the fees begin to rise. If you leave it to the last minute to enter you will be paying £370. Boats will each be given a berth which will allocated by the time of paid and completed entry, so the earlier you enter the closer your 29er will be to the launching area.
If you or your partner are under 18 years of age you will need to complete a parental consent form.
If you or your partner have a medical condition then you will need to complete a medical details form.
All boats will need to complete a self certification measurement form, if you are unsure of the details, this will be done fully at the Youth Nationals in Pwllheli and you will learn a lot about the process there, so don't panic. It may be worth you familiarising yourself with some of the measurement specifics ahead of youth nationals so that you will not be caught short. If you are unsure, ask us and we will help you out.
