After an epic weekend in Bournemouth Bay, full results are now posted under Events and Results (click the heading); Well done to everyone to make the event a hiuge success. Report to follow. Link: https://docs.google.com/a/29ersailing.org.uk/file/d/0B8IYN9iqy5z5Uno2bGNPWEhONWs/edit?usp=drivesdk
Hard to piece together at the moment but the final day results look as if they are quite topsy turvy. In Gold Fleet Rob & Emma won the battle within the race ending up 24th whilst Vikki & Steffi were one behind in 25th. 12 races and only one discard is hard! That makes Ben & Tim"s effort pretty noteworthy given they had to count 2 DNS"s due to Tim"s regatta unfriendly last exam! Not sure if Silver results are up to date as they seem to have 3 races fewer so at this point it looks as if they pulled up to 2nd.
Hard racing, gusty offshore breeze. Ben & Tim ripping up the Silver fleet. Loveridges steadyness itself in still keeping ahead of the charging (at times - well put in a 3rd in the days 2nd race out of 4) Vikki & Steffi. Current published results - click title.
2 days of Q series with 2 flights racing then 2 days of Gold & Silver. Tough job for Ben & Tim as they missed day1 with Tim still in the exam hall. Rob & Emma were pretty solid and are 15th. Vikki & Steffi were trying to remember the squad session when they were told not to gybe whilst airborne... but couldn"t quite recall it - still 26th out of 80 mind you! Click on title for day 1 results. ps James Peters (2008 ISAF Youth Worlds winner was 6th here last week in the 49er (2nd in the medal race)
The Scottish 29er scene is developing nicely and the East Lothian event testifies nicely to that. Burns & Calder set a blistering pace. 2nd was hard fought with Munro & Harris just prevailing over Team Hunter.

Nothing like a report from on the water. Read John"s perspective here. Link: https://docs.google.com/a/29ersailing.org.uk/file/d/0B8IYN9iqy5z5dl9VRF9iZGVWRHc/edit?usp=drivesdk
Batten & Gratton sail beautifully on Sunday. But so did Payne & Orton as well as the "Time Lords" Walker & Mather. All scored identical points and finished in that order overall. Just outside the main choccies were Hooper & Brown in 4th. So if you exclude the coaching staff just for a moment then 2 of the top 3 were ladies - looking good for our female skiff sailor talent pipeline! Top U16 were more ladies, newish partnership, Jane Furness and Ellie Hide.

Jack and Chris follow up their 2nd place at the RYA Youth Nationals with a win at the Irish Youth Nationals. Good performance by Owen Bowerman & Morgan Peach as well.
72! yes 72 boats for the Youth Nationals. All 4 seasons thrown at the event. Congrats to ISAF Youth Worlds Reps Ben Batten & Tim Gratton (almost rhymes!) in first overall and Ladies Champs Vikki Payne & Steffi Orton. Special mention too for the first mixed boat Rob & Emma Loveridge and top juniors (both aged under 16) Curtis Means and Jamie Catchpole; well done to them all.
Well done to Ian Payne and Chris Berry winning the first GP of the 2012 series on count-back from Phil Walker and John Mather. Very tight at the top!!
