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 ..

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.

The results from LLSC and CVSC events are below.

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.

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 ....
