The Balis couple of Tanis Bonilla and Marc Chapon certified their victory in the first EuroCup of 2014 after 9 races. Also on the podium were Mimi El-Khazindar and Ben Batten (GBR) with Gillies Munro/Daniel Harris (GBR) in third. Carla and Marta Munte were the top ranking female team. 56 skiffs came from all over Europ including a team from Russia. Good conditions on Friday and Saturday with westerly winds allowed the Race Committee to hold 4 races per day. On Sunday, after a long wait onshore, the sailors were sent out at 2:30 only to have the first race cancelled due to a change in the wind direction. A final race was held with a shortened course with the French team of Brice Yreix/Loic Fischer-Gillou winning the final race. Full results can be found here: ESP_EuroCup1.pdf

With the increasing popularity of the 29er skiff around the World, the Int. 29er Class is happy to announce increased distribution and dealer networks in the North American region. The availability of 29er hulls, spars and masts is now more accessible with the addition of 4 main partners.
"This bold new North American dealer network is what is needed to support and grow the 29er class throughout the US and Canada," said Blake MacDiarmid, 29er World Council Vice President for North America. "It is a professional approach that will keep the class healthy, accessible and affordable - just the recipe to get more youth sailors into the performance development pipeline and Olympic pathway."
The 29er Class is proud to team up with the following distributors and dealers in North America:
These four Distributors join the prestigious group of 17 current distributors and dealers spread across 15 countries covering the globe. Currently there are 7 licensed builders in the 29er world based on every continent.
The Int. 29er Class has seen phenomenal growth in its 16 years with two years in a row of World Championships with over 210 entries and almost 600 teams competing in the annual EuroCup events. Over 1,000 registered members representing 30 countries show the popularity of the skiff which beginning in 2015 will have both a boys and girls fleet at the ISAF Youth Worlds.
