New Ovington 29er deck layout

Check out some of the first pictures of the new 29er deck layout. The moulds have been CNC machined for perfect symmetry with the first boats going to this year's Youth Worlds in New Zealand.

We have made a few tweaks and changes from feedback we've received from our sailors - the most notable being the inclusion of moulded kickbars. This helps clear up the cockpit, stops any leaking issues and gives the 29er a fresh, new look.

A few other tweaks we've done are changing the plastic trapeze bush in the gunwhale to a smooth alloy bush with one on the underside of the gunwhale as well.

The mast partner turret has been sculpted to protect the spinnaker pole from hitting the halyard block and causing it to crack.

The daggerboard case has also been re-moulded to fit the GRP daggerboard. With the factory supplied gasket, you get a nice tight fit without the hassle.

The same has been done for the rudder stock. Re-profiled and a new gasket means the rudders now fit perfectly.

New 29ers will also now be supplied with padded toe straps as standard.

Brand new 29ers will be available to buy from November.

If you have any questions about the changes, call the office up at any time and we'd be happy to help answer them.
