Hayling Island Sailing Club hosted the 4th 29er Harken Grand Prix last weekend. The fleet launched and sailed out into the bay in sunny and spring like conditions, with the crews trapezing in an easterly breeze.

29er 2020 World Championships


It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that the UK 29er Class and WPNSA have won the bid to host the 29er 2020 World Championships.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter Allam and his team at WPNSA for the work they have put into the bid.

The UK 29er Class looks forward to working with the 29er International Class and WPNSA in the coming years.

It’s going to be an epic event - save the date in your diary August 2020!’

Whilst the earthquake raged in Swansea, a stillness prevailed in Club Nautica El Balis. The Hungarian team (light builds) put up their sails at 9.30 am in a vain attempt to convince the Race Committee that a howling gale was approaching. The rest of the fleet adopted the prone position and watched the unmoving palm fronds. And so passed Day One of the Barcelona 29er Eurocup.

With 47 entries, the 29er fleet arrived early on Saturday Morning at Draycote Water Sailing Club for the Noble Marine Winter Champtionships to find a glassy millpond with gentle sleet.

29er Harken GP 1 – New pairing hits the top at WPNSA

By Anna Sturrock and Jo Harris

43 boats rocked up to WPNSA for the first Grand Prix of the series on 23rd/24th September. The fleet launched into the harbour and were welcomed by a good breeze, with 4 races completed promptly and with ease on Saturday. Freddie Peters and Elliot Wells dominated the day with two bullets and two more top 5s to take the overnight lead.
