The minutes from the 29er Class Committee Meeting held at WPNSA on 17 August 2017 are now available - click here to view them.

(This will be my final post .... Paul)

At the International 29er Council meeting at Long Beach a decision was made to set up a new Technical Committee to look at Strategic changes to the boat (ie carbon mast) and the UK Class have proposed someone for that committee. This Committee is expected to report back in summer 2018 (I think ?) so while the carbon rig is being discussed it seems unlikely to happen in the very near term. More likely in a 1-3 year horizon and perhaps not at all - there remain plenty of technical and financial issues to deal with - nonetheless the idea is being investigated fully.

The UK 29er Class Association is pleased to announce that Arthur and Cheryl Allen have been granted an RYA Community Award in the Lifetime Commitment category.

The minutes from the 29er Class Committee Meeting held at Hayling Island SC on 15 July 2017 are now available here.

You can view minutes of meetings and other class documents at any time via our website, by selecting 'Everything Else' -> 'Documents' from the main menu.

The Class Association is pleased to announce the dates for Open Training sessions in 2017-18.  There are eight training weekends from September to March open to members wishing to improve their sailing over the winter months.  These sessions are open to all and aim to cater for sailors with the full range of abilities and experience. 

There are discounts available for booking multiple sessions so look ahead and plan your winter training schedule!

We are currently working on getting a trailer(s) to take boats to the Europeans in 2018 in Helsinki.

To get on the waiting list please pay a £100 deposit – fully refundable until 1 November 2017. By that time we will have certainty over the payment schedule and cost – we expect the cost will be in the range £750-£900 a boat for the return journey.


We also expect that a portion of the cost will need to be paid in November with further payment likely early in the New Year. It is highly likely full payment will be required before Easter 2018. (We are in negotiations with a few providers and want to understand the potential demand).

We hope to be able to satisfy all those that want to go but will go down the list in date and time order of those on the deposit list. Anyone wishing to drop off the list at any time before 1 November 2017 will get a full refund.

Click here to get added to the waiting list (£100 deposit required)

If you are interested in attending the HK Worlds in Jan 2018 and want to discss shipping please be aware that time will move on fairly quickly wtih shipping of boats in only 3/4 months time. So far only 3 boats have expressed interest and we need to get an idea of the likely numbers shortly.

Please do chat to Nia at the HISC GP or contact her on [email protected] if you want to find out more.
