The 29er XX is here!

This is the incredible 29er hull with an all carbon fibre rig, a masthead spinnaker and twin trapeze.

The 29erXX provides an exciting new challenge to skiff sailors looking for the ultimate thrills of a powered-up rig and double trapeze. This new design features an all-carbon mast with twin spreaders that is approximately 450mm longer than the standard 29er rig, while the main, jib and kite are about 6 square meters larger. All of these upgrades fit nicely on to the existing 29er platform and also share the same boom, pole, blades and tiller. So upgrading is simplicity itself.

The first international regatta for this new class was held in Weymouth, UK, in the summer of 2006. The event brought together 27 menís, womenís and mixed teams from 8 countries providing valuable input to help make this a mature, well designed boat.
