Introducing our New Class Chair

At the class AGM, Chris Evans stood down as 29er Class Chair and Phil Lightbody was elected as the new Chair of the UK 29er Class.

Hi everyone,

I do hope those who travelled to Largs enjoyed the nationals and are now all set for the Youth Nationals next week.

A couple of weeks back the class AGM took place and Chris Evans stood down and I was elected the new Chair of the 29er Class. Chris has run the 29er class in exceptionally difficult circumstances over the past 2 years and we should all be very grateful for his commitment to the role.

For those who don’t know, my family and I live in Lymington and have 3 daughters who all sail, some more than others!  I am 12 months into the 29er youth class with my eldest so lots to learn.

So my first official duty is next week at the youth nationals (luckily run by the RYA and not the class) and will then hopefully travel to Valencia for the Worlds before we start GP1 in Weymouth mid September. 

I’ve attached a picture so please come and say hello if you can and would welcome any ideas to help improve class.
