Do you have a RIB that you could bring along to Class events? If so, we would love to hear from you.
The safety of our sailors is really important, and we are always looking for parents and supporters who have RIBs that they are willing to bring along to our racing and training events as part of our safety fleet. This is a great way to get involved with the class and be part of our events, as well as providing an opportunity to see our sailors in action at close quarters.
If you have a RIB that you could bring to 29er Training and or GP Events, please do get in touch by emailing our class secretary Lisa.
