(Corrected) Congratulations to UK 29er sailors Mimi El-Khazindar and Emma Loveridge winners of the Yachts and Yachting 2016 Youth Sailors of the year award.

Well done to Dan and Nat for the win at the Noble Marine Winter Championships. Results are on the left hand side of the class home page. Updated ranking list will follow in due course. 

While the UK has been basking in rain and storms over New Year the ISAF Worlds have been underway in Malaysia. It looks like the wind was fresher than many expected with some enviable sailing conditions looking at the photo's.

Ovi Inlands report from Bobby ...  huge thanks again to Harken, Ovingtons as well as Grafham for their support. Not forgetting Charlie Stowe for the effort he put in organising and re-organising the event and being CSL on "Big" Saturday.

Well done to all the competitors this weekend during two days of racing that tested the upper and lower end of the wind range. Huge thanks also to Grafham for hosting the rearranged dates. 

Congratulations to Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling winners of the Europcup event at Lake Garda from the Slovenian pair that finished 4th at the Worlds. James Grummett and Daniel Budden finished 5th overall to leave 2 GBR boats in the top 5. 

29er Harken GP4 - Weymouth

By Daniel Budden & James Grummett

On the 24th of July 55 boats took to the water for the 4th Harken Grand Prix at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The breeze was up at 12knts for the first few races and with a keen race officer the fleet launched on time out into the Weymouth Bay.

By Harvey Martin

Hayling Island hosted the third GP in the Harken series on the 10/11 of October. It started cold and cloudy, with little wind, quite different to that forecasted, but with the usual Hayling tide. This made it an interesting day of racing with few teams being very consistent. Crispin and Tommy lead the first day with Dan and Nathaniel in a close second, counting two 1sts, and Arron and Billy in third. Other race winners included Bella and Ella and Bobby and Harvey.
