Transitional Group

For those sailors who have recently progressed to the 29er from junior classes and show early promise in the 29er you may be invited to join this group. The training will be alongside the Class Academy but will be overseen by a specific coaching team. The aim will be to deliver training tailored to the sailors within that group (6-10 boats).

All transitioning sailors are invited to attend the Academy on 15th September at WPNSA so that we can select sailors for this group based on their previous sailing results (junior class) and their performance over the weekend.

You will also need to apply on the 29er Class website from 1st August 2018.
