We have been informed that the organizers for the 2020 Europeans, scheduled to take place in Medemblik, are not able to move forward organizing the regatta and, therefore, have rescinded their bid. The International Class is actively seeking an alternate venue and hopes to have a new regatta host confirmed in the coming weeks.

We will let you know when we have any updates.

We are delighted to announce that NeilPryde Sailing, a leading manufacturer of dinghy sailing gear, will sponsor the UK 29er Class as our official technical clothing sponsor for 2019 and 2020.

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.

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.

Pwllheli SC hosted Harken 29er Grand Prix 5 on the May Bank Holiday weekend. Saturday saw sailors gradually arriving, with some taking advantage of the sunny weather and steady (if light breeze) to do a bit of sailing.
