The dates for the 2019 29er Nationals in Pwllheli have now been announced. The event will run from Tuesday (measuring) to Sunday 6th - 11th August. More details to follow shortly.

Late last month Shirley Robertson and CNN Sport joined the 29er UK Class Association at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy to look at how weather affects racing. Check out this month's Mainsail programme by clicking below. 

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.

RYA Profiling will take place over the weekend of 9th and 10th February 2019 (most of the testing will be done on Saturday 9th February.) Testing will be offered around the country and home counties. Sailors looking for inclusion in the RYA Youth Squads should plan to attend this weekend.

The RYA will publish further details in the next few weeks of how this will work with selections and details of how the sailors can meet the physical demands necessary for the squads.

Dear Lovely Parents,

The 29er Committee is very keen to get parents with sailors who will be staying on in the 29er Class for the next two years onto the 2018/19 Committee.

The Class is currently run by a dedicated and hardworking set of parents who help to organise all of the coaching, training, welfare, finances and racing. It’s lots of fun!

Without help from volunteers the 29er Class and all of the wonderful events would simply not exist.

If you feel that you are able to spare some time to work alongside a really great bunch of inspiring parents - please email me on [email protected] - the 29er Class would love to hear from you!

Best wishes, Sue Ormerod

So according to the forecasts, our two 29er boats, Freya Black/Millie Aldridge and Ewan Wilson/Fin Armstrong will face intense heat, light winds and warm seas at the Corpus Christi Texas Youth Sailing World Championships from 14 July until 21st July. A far cry from the gale force easterlies and wind chill thrown at them at the RYA Youth Nationals qualifier.
