Welcome to the International 29er Page
HISC 29er sailors are regarded amongst the highest standard in the country. We have a diverse fleet at HISC from all levels from transitioning sailors from other classes to world championship level. The boat park is easily accessible for the car park as many of our sailors also represent HISC on the circuit.
There are lots opportunities for Juniors transitioning into this exciting class, many of our Tera and Feva sailors move on to the 29er.
HISC 29ers race with the fast handicap fleet at the weekends, you can find this on the Club racing schedule.
Paul and Victoria have pencilled in these days in and have we think at least one club RIB and parent ones to run the racing. We need the parents all to muck in to run the racing and provide safety cover so please volunteer. We expect 10-15 boats hopefully.

We are hoping to get a 29er team together to take on the annual Commodores Trophy which is held 20 August. The event is seriously fun sailed in the Club RS Ventures with running commentary from the balcony. The “parent and child” trophy and the “ladies trophy” are also up for grabs at the same event.
If you require private coaching the club has a list of coaches they can recommend we have many home grown, very experienced coaches available to a HISC.
HISC 29er Squad
HISC Squad for 2016-17 may be a lot bigger than 2015-16 with two groups, due to the interest we have had so far. The groups will dependant on how the sailors get on over the season so that the sailors get to sail with similar abilities and not feel overwhelmed. Race results will help us to make the selection. It’s got to be fun as well as instructive. :)
Youth Race Week
HISC Youth race Week is popular event with the 29ers who get their own trophy. This years YRW is the same time as the worlds so it may be a good opportunity for those transitioning into 29er to pick up some prizes! Youth Race Week also includes the Youth ball is also a highlight of the summer.
Your 29er Class Captain is Victoria Payne
