RYA Press Release

2 March 2015


Eric Twiname Trust presents its 31st RIB to 29er Class Association


The 31st support craft funded by the Eric Twiname Trust was handed over to the 29er Class Association at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace this weekend (28 February).

Following the RYA"s decision not to send a team to the EUROSAF Youth Sailing European Championships due to date clashes with all the classes competing at this event, the event has now been rescheduled. Consequently the RYA now intends to select and support a full team to the 2015 EUROSAF Youth Sailing European Championships. Click for more details. Link

RYA Squad coaches Phil Walker, Nick Redding, and James Ellis have compiled a Best Practice Guide for 29er sailors, together with a set of accompaying video clips. Click here to view the Best Practice Guide. Link
