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.

The NoR is up and it now looks like this is a 6 day event not a 4 day one as implied. 

This means measuring is now Sunday and Monday. Racing Tuesday - Sunday.

Come and sail in some of the most glorious scenery and join other Youth helms for 2 days of competitive sailing at the RYA NE Youth Championships. 

All members of the Class Association should have an email called "29er News" which we aim to send out monthly updating on relevant issues to keep all informed of events/training etc

Harken GP Series is up after 5 events. Nick/Billy lead on tie break from James/James. Top Girls are still Hannah/Emily though Bella/Anna are close. Top mixed pair are Sarah/Nick in 6th. Top Juniors are Ryan/Louis.


A huge thank you to all those that helped deliver the Winter Championships we are very grateful to Draycote, Ian Bullock and his team as well as all those that volunteered.

Well done Dan and Fin who won comfortably and in an event where no boat managed a top 10 finish in every race they were the only pair to string together a consistent series at the front.

The ranking list is now out (Thank you Chris Hewitt) with the top 4 very tight. Nick/Billy lead from Hannah/Emily then James/James, Dan/Fin.

Crew Changes. Please note that under 8.4 of the NoS for the GPs we have no choice but to ask those that swap around to enter as a new entry or retire. This is not a problem but its definately better to know ahead of the Prizegiving please.  (Thank you Rachel James for your work on the results).

Great video of Chew Valley SC sprints .. 


For those that want to see the format for the Sprint Finals chack out this video from 7.39 onwards ... two former GBR 29ers on display here.... more to follow on the format but expect each boat to sail up to 14 races like this all weekend ...
