Dear Lovely Parents,

The 29er Committee is very keen to get parents with sailors who will be staying on in the 29er Class for the next two years onto the 2018/19 Committee.

The Class is currently run by a dedicated and hardworking set of parents who help to organise all of the coaching, training, welfare, finances and racing. It’s lots of fun!

Without help from volunteers the 29er Class and all of the wonderful events would simply not exist.

If you feel that you are able to spare some time to work alongside a really great bunch of inspiring parents - please email me on [email protected] - the 29er Class would love to hear from you!

Best wishes, Sue Ormerod

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.

We are delighted to announce that Velocitek are generously supporting the Sprints Finals in 2018 and 2019 by supplying a SpeedPuck to the winning teams. The SpeedPuck is a GPS speedometer which provided speed, heading, maximum speed and automatic shift tracking. The SpeedPuck has data logging capability which can be downloaded by the keen sailor/coach for post training analysis or simply to give you your maximum speed per session for bragging rights in the clubhouse. A big thank you to Velocitek and see you all at the Sprints Finals 2018.

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.

If you have a Rib you can provide for Events throughout the year or are willing to either helm or crew a Rib for events either as safety or race management, we will in future be posting a volunteer sheet to each event page for you to sign up.
If you have a Rib you would be willing to provide, expenses are available per the Rib Policy.

Events can't be run without the generous support of volunteers and parents and it gives us all a great view of the action whilst providing a vital service to provide a safe environment for our sailors.
We are now looking for volunteers to sign up for our Ovington Inland Championships at Grafham Water SC on 18/19 November:
