ISAF has approved new GRP foils for the 29er to take effect from 1 November 2015. Whilst the foils have been built and produced by a licenced manufacturer and carry the ICA 9er equipment label, the ISAF approved Builders Construction manual has not been updated to reflect the change in material and therefore these foils are currently not permitted for use whilst racing.
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:
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.
The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce that Icom UK will provide a sponsorship package to the class and it's members.

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
