Final Notice of Series updated Nov 7
At the 2012 Annual General Meeting, the National Reps voted to create a Safety Committee to gather information of injuries incurred during 29er sailing. After a year of deliberation, the Safety Committee has now created an online form for sailors to complete after an incident, so they can gather information to ascertain if there are similarities between injuries incurred around the World. The online form is confidential; seen only by the Safety Committee. Please use this link following any incident so we can keep skiff sailing safe! Safety Form
