29er Class Rule Change re sail number.s .... World Sailing and the 29er Executive have approved the following .. details on www.29er.org

Basically you are no longer restricted to only use the sail number that matches the blue plaque on the boat  (with the continued exception of the Top 25 numbers which is still allowed) ie. ...

"The sail number shall be that shown on the World Sailing hull plaque of any hull still owned by them, on any boat owned by them or on any boat loaned or chartered for an event."

Full rules and details on the International Class website 

HISC GP8 and Nationals Deadlines are approaching

HISC GP8 - 8th July is the last day for £50 entry then entry fee steps up to £65. Entry closes on 12th July.

Nationals - Entry closes 22nd July. With 67 boats (66 GBR)  this is already the 3rd largest ever GBR entry. 4 more entries needed to exceed last years GBR entry of 71 boats. Enter soon and please look at the information on pre measurement ro make your Nationals more relaxed. 

Congratulations to the GBR sailors in Norway that attended the 2016 Europeans

Huw and Josh led the way with 3rd place followed by Nick/Billy in 5th and Tom/Crispin 7th.

A total of 6 GBR teams made Gold fleet with Ollie/Jamie 19th, JJ/James 20th and Bobby/Harvey 25th. Among the Girls Emily/Hannah were 4th Girls and Phoebe/Sophie 5th Girls.

6 boats in the Top 25 and 3 in the Top 10 was not bettered by any other Nation though NED boats took the top 2 places which was very impressive. The Worlds with 220 entries look set  to be extremely competitve.

We are trying out a new approach to measurement at the Nationals to cut down on the time taken to measure boats. Essentially the only thing that all boats need to measure onsite at Torbay will be the forestay and everything else is filled in on a self declaration form. You are welcome to measure all items onsite at Torbay if you need to but we would encourage as many as possible to pre-measure ahead of the Nationals. 

This can be done at 3 venues:

The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce a new partnership with the John Merricks Sailing Trust (JMST) to provide 29er coaching bursaries aimed at encouraging the development of 29er sailing at a local level. The JMST will partner with the UK 29er Class to match the funding of a new coaching Bursary. This will double the number of potential awards from an initial 4 to 8.
 These 8 awards will offer 29er club fleets the opportunity to have a  29er coach for a day at their club and encourage growth of local coaching. The UK 29er Class is very proud to partner with the JMST in this way and we hope a large number of 29er local fleets as possible will get in touch. John was a huge supporter of youth sailing and we hope that this grant will help celebrate that as well as giving a lift to our local 29er club fleets. 
 For more information about the JMST go to http://www.jmst.org.uk/.

Reminder that entry for the Ullswater GP closes tonight... so far 18 entries and growing. 

Five GBR boats made the trip to Kiel with 19 races over 4 days.... first 3 days were breezy last day light.
4 GBR boats made Gold fleetr ... Harvey+Bobby finishrf top GBR in 15th overall, JJ+James 19th, Ross+Alex 21st, George+Freddie 25th. In Silver Sarah and Nick finished 46th overall.
Next up for Team GBR is the Europeans in Norway where 12 GBR boats are entered and Nick Simes is already on the way with 6 boats in tow...
