Winter Champs at Draycote 

SSIs and 2017 MEIs have been posted on the website , there have been some amendemnets and changes due to the 2017-2020 Rules so we recomeend you have a read through these.

We are currently trying to establish how many sailors still wish to enter the Winter Championships on 4/5 Feb. Please enter by end of Friday 20th January and join the waiting list if you wish to attend. Anyone not on the waiting list by this deadline is somewhat less likely to gain entry.If for any reason you need to cancel your accepted entry please inform Lisa membership secretary and she will then offer that to the next entry on the waiting list . This has just happened so the wait list has dropped by one.

More infomation sent to us from a parent after talking to the French National Sailing Centre (ENSVN) cut and pasted verbatum.

50 entry limit

Since yesterday we have had nine entries and we are now at 42, for a number of reason for this event we will be sticking at our cap of 50 entries

We have been asked a few questions about the location and dates of the 2017 Europeans. Below gives what we know after enquiries with the International Class.

Congratulations to the GBR 29er sailors at the recent Youth Worlds in Auckland.

Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling took Gold in the Boys event taking the first GBR medal in the 29er since 2008, while Hannah Bristow and Emily Covell were 5th overall in the Girls event.

Very impressive performances from both teams.

 

Great start from GBR 29ers after day 1 of 5 at the Youth Worlds in NZ .. GBR 29ers win 3 of the 6 races sailed on day 1. Good luck from us all ....
