Head Chef John at the Royal Torbay has been contacted to provide meal options for all members and visitors . With the option of eating out doors looking over the Bay or in the newly decorated dining area please support the efforts of the club . Torbay at this time of year is very busy and you will likely wait along time being served in the various eateries. John will start serving half an hour after the sailors are off the water or 18.00 if they are earlier than 17.29. which means you can get back to your accomodation to spruce up and dance the night away in Torbados!

Hi All please see the below regarding Nick Simes from his family,.

The funeral will be on Thursday 22nd June, full details at Nicks tribute site http://nick.simes.muchloved.com

Please do pass on this information as you see fit, no problem if you want to post this on the website also. The family will be pleased to see you all attend.

Hi All

David Ibbotson and David Sturrock have been working hard in developing the event at Largs, with numbers reducing the decision has been made to change the event to tailor to the sailors able to attend. With this, a mix of training on Saturday, Racing on Sunday and further training on Monday with the opportunity to extend to Tuesday if sailors wish . 

If you are a transitioning sailor from a Junior Class this event will be perfect for you to get lots of input from the Coaches and David and David, please pass on and share to any prospective teams . Contact david_ibbotson@btconnect.com in the first instance or myself Andre on 07712650806 and we will happily answer any questions . A number of boats are signed up and there is room for more, i stress that this will be a great opportunity to leap frog some of the hurdles sailing a 29er can be in the early  stages for new teams.

It is with great sadness that we convey the news that Nick Simes passed away earlier this week.
Without being an official committee member Nick has done more than anyone to help transport UK 29ers around the country and the world - always with a smile on his face - getting young sailors on the water often in far away places.
 He has also been a huge help to almost everyone around the boat park over the last few years. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family.
Somehow coleslaw will never be the same without Nick being around.
 Details of the funeral will follow when we have them. Paul Hammett

The minutes and reports from our 2016 AGM are now available on our website.

All 29er UK Class members should have an email copy of the May version of 29er newsletter.

This covers a few notable points - one of which is a reminder that the entry fee for the Nationals steps up shortly - why pay more than you need to ?

The UK 29er Class, in partnership with Schoolblazer, will be offering branded clothing for the summer events of 2017. You can order Worlds, Europeans or Nationals items.

After much discussion following the publication of the NOR for the Europeans the committee have decided to end our Nationals on Thursday night (17th August) to allow the large number of boats planning to attend both the Nationals and the Europeans to turn themselves around and travel to Quiberon ready for the start of the Europeans, which now begin measuring on Sunday 20th.

Congratulations to the RYA 2017 UK Youth National Champions:

Girls - Bella Fellows and Anna Sturrock

Boys - James Hammett and James Eales

Also well done to everyone that competed and for those that reached personal milestones.
