Welcome to the 29er Class

We are the UK 29er Class Association - arguably the UK’s best youth class. The 29er is a high performance skiff - a two person, single trapeze dinghy with an asymmetric spinnaker. Fully battened sails, with a self tacking jib, supported on a composite tipped mast make the 29er dynamite downwind. Getting started in the class could not be easier as we run a comprehensive training programme including open training and squads. We believe you should be out there racing so we encourage all of our new sailors to come to our events. As a RYA recognised class, we have a well organised and competitive national circuit along with a lively international series of events for those willing to travel.

It’s pure, unadulterated, high octane sailing.
