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.
