The Class Association is pleased to announce the dates for Open Training sessions in 2017-18. There are eight training weekends from September to March open to members wishing to improve their sailing over the winter months. These sessions are open to all and aim to cater for sailors with the full range of abilities and experience.
There are discounts available for booking multiple sessions so look ahead and plan your winter training schedule!
Images from Harken 29er GP 7 at Royal Torbay Yacht Club are now available to view on Jean Border's website.
We are currently working on getting a trailer(s) to take boats to the Europeans in 2018 in Helsinki.
To get on the waiting list please pay a £100 deposit – fully refundable until 1 November 2017. By that time we will have certainty over the payment schedule and cost – we expect the cost will be in the range £750-£900 a boat for the return journey.
We also expect that a portion of the cost will need to be paid in November with further payment likely early in the New Year. It is highly likely full payment will be required before Easter 2018. (We are in negotiations with a few providers and want to understand the potential demand).
We hope to be able to satisfy all those that want to go but will go down the list in date and time order of those on the deposit list. Anyone wishing to drop off the list at any time before 1 November 2017 will get a full refund.
If you are interested in attending the HK Worlds in Jan 2018 and want to discss shipping please be aware that time will move on fairly quickly wtih shipping of boats in only 3/4 months time. So far only 3 boats have expressed interest and we need to get an idea of the likely numbers shortly.
Please do chat to Nia at the HISC GP or contact her on [email protected] if you want to find out more.
The minutes and reports from our 2016 AGM are now available on our website.
Congratulations to the RYA 2017 UK Youth National Champions:
Girls - Bella Fellows and Anna Sturrock
Boys - James Hammett and James Eales
Also well done to everyone that competed and for those that reached personal milestones.
The NoR is up and it now looks like this is a 6 day event not a 4 day one as implied.
This means measuring is now Sunday and Monday. Racing Tuesday - Sunday.
