The high performance boat everyone thinks of when talking about moving youth sailing forward. The legendary 29er is a double-handed performance skiff for youth training and racing. Designed by Julian Bethwaite (Olympic 49er designer), the 29er provides a stable, user-friendly pathway into the thrill and techniques of skiff sailing. An asymmetric spinnaker, mylar main, jib, and trapeze provide speed without sacrificing control in breezy conditions. Used worldwide for youth one design racing, the 29er has an active class association working to get more kids into higher performance sailing.
