The dates for the 2019 29er Nationals in Pwllheli have now been announced. The event will run from Tuesday (measuring) to Sunday 6th - 11th August. More details to follow shortly.

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.

After months of light wind events, gales lashed the UK rendering the first and second day of the Youths unsailable. The huge breeze wreaked havoc in the boat park taking advantage of any boats that weren’t tied down securely. Finally by the afternoon of the third day, the gales eased allowing the event to get under way.

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

29ers

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.
