The minutes from Aprils committee meeting are now available on our website: select 'Everything Else' -> 'Documents' to find them.

A  number of new initiatives were agreed at a recent Committee meeting at Pwllheli. Full minutes will be posted on the website under Everything Else -> Documents once we have dealt with some technical issues, though below is a brief executive summary of some main points.

The RYA have asked us to post this message (note RYA squads are not Class run so we are only passing this on).

Due to IT issues, we are unable to notify all sailors who have applied for a place in the RYA UK Youth/T2 Squad within the publicised timeframe.

We (the RYA) will endeavour to notify all applicants by Friday 29th April 2016.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

29er racing in Northern England and Scotland.

Fast, Fun and Friendly

 

Our regattas are open to 29er sailors of all ages and home counties at the best sailing venues the North has to offer.

The 2016 RYA Youth National Champions are Phoebe Connellan / Sophie Otter in the girls and Crispin Beaumont / Tom Darling in the boys. 

Both pairs won by a comprehensive margin after a week of tough racing.

The UK 29er Class is planning a new form of racing for 2016/2017 with locally run Sprint Racing events over the Autumn / Winter 2016/2017 culminating in a Grand Final at Grafham in March 2017.  (If you haven't heard of Sprint racing think of 10-12 minute races on a short course - fast and furious racing like a 49er medal race)

Cripsin and Tom the only GBR sailors at Europcup 2.

Thanks to Sophie and Phoebe for the Marconi write up. Apologies for the delay we had some photo issues. link here.

A reminder that the late entry fee kicks in from Sunday 13th March so if you are intending to come save yourself £40 by entering before then.

For those considering applying for Youth Squad and eligibility for the summer Support (YS+T1)  please see attached the updated RYA selection documentation.

Please see the attached about sail numbers. It has been determined that the square "8" font is not ISAF rules compliant.

We understand that boats will not be penalised at measuring at the Youth Nationals.
