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

After 4 races in a good breeze today and 12 in total .. Nick/Billy were 12th in Gold with James/James 15th and Hannah/Emily 22nd. In Silver Millie/Jess came in 8th in Silver.

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 ...

The final few sprint events took place this weekend with 11 boats at Chew Valley and 5 at Leigh and Lowton. In total 63 pairs raced at 10 events at 8 different clubs over the winter. A huge thank you to all the clubs that put on events.

Following on from the decision at the class committee meeting in November we are running a pilot GP7 , we will hold a GP in Largs and a GP in Torbay on the same weekend of July 1-2 2017. Wherever the teams compete their GP score will count towards the GP series ie for GP7 series scores we will have 2 1sts 2 2nds 2 3rds etc.
