Nineteen 29er teams headed to Yorkshire dales, some with drives lasting eight hours for the third Grand Prix of the series and a much needed exam break.

There are some excellent pictures from Harken GP3 at Yorkshire Dales, from Paul Hargreaves and John Thornley.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the RYA Youth Nationals last week, very trying and challenging conditions, especially the first three days where patience, risk assessment and very gentle boat handling were key in very light and shifty airs.

Overall winners were Dan Venables and Patrick Keech who sailed superbly across the whole week

The Class Rules have been changed to maintain the current practices of having Class Insignia on only one side of the sail, and of not displaying national letters and numbers on spinnakers.

Results from Harken GP2 at Rutland SC are now online here:
