Welcome to the 2020 Zhik 29er European Championship

2020 29er EVENT UPDATE -APRIL 3rd

2020 29er World and European Championships

After careful consideration, the International 29er Class Association and the Organizing Authorities for the 2020 Zhik 29er World Championship and the 2020 Zhik 29er European Championship have mutually concluded that both the 2020 World and European Championships are cancelled.  We are grateful to the organizing teams in GBR and DEN who have expended countless hours preparing for our 2020 events, both of which promised to set a new standard of excellence for 29er sailing.

We reached this difficult decision following a review of the extensive event guidelines set forth by World Sailing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our primary concern is always the safety and well-being of our membership and volunteers and we and our OAs mutually concluded that cancelling the 2020 championships is the only viable course of action under World Sailing’s guidelines. 

We encourage all of our NCAs, as well as regional and local 29er sailing programs, to redirect their energy and resources toward making a robust local and national training and regatta program.  In the coming weeks we will reach out to all our NCAs and other interested parties to support and promote these efforts.  In the meantime, the class has many resources to assist with these efforts and is available to help any time.  Please contact Steph Banham, Executive Director, at office@29er.org or Joan Mollerus, President, at jgmollerus@gmail.com with any questions.
