It has come to the attention of the International 29er Class that the Class Sail Royalty label which includes the item serial number has for some unexplained reason been “falling off” the sail.

If you are looking to transition from a Junior Class and wish to try out a 29er, the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre in Weymouth has 3 29ers that can be used for exactly this purpose. The centre will charge £80 per person for a full day with a coach. They will want evidence of the sailors skill level in the chosen Junior class but are happy to accommodate sailors that want to transition into the world of 29er skiff sailing.

Well done to all our sailors who competed at the Eurpoean Championships in Medemblik. Some superb sailing in tricky conditions saw Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling taking the Silver Medal and Mimi El-Khazindar and Emma Loveridge taking First Ladies. There were excellent results from our teams at all levels in the event. You can view the full set of results here: 

29er Europeans 2015 Results

The results from the 2015 Harken Grand Prix series are now available online.

Kiel Week 2015 saw ten GBR 29ers competing within the 85 strong fleet from 15 countries. The fleet were split into 3 flights racing a windward leeward course. Despite the light 4 – 8 knot winds on day one the RO managed to complete 4 races. Germans dominated with light weights Paul Pietzcker / Linus V. Oppen (scored 1/1/1/4) ahead Gwendal Lamay / Luke Willim (5/9/2/1) in 2nd; & 3rd Hinnerk Siemsen / Sören Brandt (8/6/2/1). Top Brits were Dan Venables / Patrick Keech (5/10/1/4) in 6th.

There is a great team of UK sailors competing in this week's Eurocup. You can see today's action on the Kieler Wocher Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIc3fCUrEZc

The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce that Icom UK will provide a sponsorship package to the class and it's members.

If you have posted an item in the forum that is older than 45 days then they will be removed from view. This is an automatic policy that will be turned on shortly.

Nineteen 29er teams headed to Yorkshire dales, some with drives lasting eight hours for the third Grand Prix of the series and a much needed exam break.

There are some excellent pictures from Harken GP3 at Yorkshire Dales, from Paul Hargreaves and John Thornley.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the RYA Youth Nationals last week, very trying and challenging conditions, especially the first three days where patience, risk assessment and very gentle boat handling were key in very light and shifty airs.

Overall winners were Dan Venables and Patrick Keech who sailed superbly across the whole week
