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)

Cripsin and Tom the only GBR sailors at Europcup 2.

Thanks to Sophie and Phoebe for the Marconi write up. Apologies for the delay we had some photo issues. link here.
