(Corrected) Congratulations to UK 29er sailors Mimi El-Khazindar and Emma Loveridge winners of the Yachts and Yachting 2016 Youth Sailors of the year award.

Well done to Dan and Nat for the win at the Noble Marine Winter Championships. Results are on the left hand side of the class home page. Updated ranking list will follow in due course. 

Ahead of the Noble Marine Winter Championships we thought it would be useful to give some background on Noble Marine and their involvement with the 29er Class in the UK.

While the UK has been basking in rain and storms over New Year the ISAF Worlds have been underway in Malaysia. It looks like the wind was fresher than many expected with some enviable sailing conditions looking at the photo's.

The International 29er Class rule changes for 2016 have been posted on the International Class website. The amendments can can also be found on the documents part of this website in the folder International.

Ovi Inlands report from Bobby ...  huge thanks again to Harken, Ovingtons as well as Grafham for their support. Not forgetting Charlie Stowe for the effort he put in organising and re-organising the event and being CSL on "Big" Saturday.

The 29er Class is a signatory to the RYA Racing Charter. Details of that charter and the relevance to 29er Class members can be found below and in the documents section of the website.

RYA Racing Charter

Well done to all the competitors this weekend during two days of racing that tested the upper and lower end of the wind range. Huge thanks also to Grafham for hosting the rearranged dates.

29er Harken GP4 - Weymouth

By Daniel Budden & James Grummett

On the 24th of July 55 boats took to the water for the 4th Harken Grand Prix at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The breeze was up at 12knts for the first few races and with a keen race officer the fleet launched on time out into the Weymouth Bay.
