(This will be my final post .... Paul)

At the International 29er Council meeting at Long Beach a decision was made to set up a new Technical Committee to look at Strategic changes to the boat (ie carbon mast) and the UK Class have proposed someone for that committee. This Committee is expected to report back in summer 2018 (I think ?) so while the carbon rig is being discussed it seems unlikely to happen in the very near term. More likely in a 1-3 year horizon and perhaps not at all - there remain plenty of technical and financial issues to deal with - nonetheless the idea is being investigated fully.

The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce that Arthur and Cheryl Allen have been granted an RYA Community Award in the Lifetime Commitment category. 

The award was put forward by 2015/2017 29er Chairman Paul Hammett and supported with submissions from Clive Grummett and Ben Cooper both previous Chair's of the Class.

Arthur and Cheryl have been omnipresent in the boatpark at measurement time at 29er events Nationally and Internationally for many years and we are hugely grateful to both for their work for the Class and the RYA over the years. Thank you both for your support.

If you are going to the 29er Europeans in Quiberon and are not supported by the RYA then please read on.

Steve Irish is the class coach for the event plus another parent has kindly offered to assist as support on the other course. This provided free of charge by the UK Class.

We have set up a FB page for Steve to communicate with sailors and parents at the event for briefing times and get in touch if needed at the event.
