The minutes from Aprils committee meeting are now available on our website: select 'Everything Else' -> 'Documents' to find them.

A  number of new initiatives were agreed at a recent Committee meeting at Pwllheli. Full minutes will be posted on the website under Everything Else -> Documents once we have dealt with some technical issues, though below is a brief executive summary of some main points.

The 2016 RYA Youth National Champions are Phoebe Connellan / Sophie Otter in the girls and Crispin Beaumont / Tom Darling in the boys. 

Both pairs won by a comprehensive margin after a week of tough racing.

The UK 29er Class is planning a new form of racing for 2016/2017 with locally run Sprint Racing events over the Autumn / Winter 2016/2017 culminating in a Grand Final at Grafham in March 2017.  (If you haven't heard of Sprint racing think of 10-12 minute races on a short course - fast and furious racing like a 49er medal race)
