Continuing its support of the class, Typhoon International has announced that it will be returning as sponsor of the 29er UK Class Association for 2024.

This will be the fourth consecutive year that the leading watersports apparel and equipment manufacturer has supported the class as Official Technical Clothing Class Sponsor.

"We're delighted to be returning as sponsor for 29er Class for another season and continue our long-term partnership with the 29er association," says Amy Grealish, Marketing Manager at Typhoon.

"We are very proud to be able to give back to youth sailing, and actively support the sailors who use our extensive range of clothing and equipment designed specifically for dinghy sailors."

As part of Typhoon's sponsorship in 2024, it will be providing prizes at the major events in 29er Class Association calendar. In addition, Typhoon will also be continuing its support of three 29er crews to give them the best possible chance to excel in both the class and the sport.

Following a very busy season, one of the pairs supported by Typhoon in 2023, Annabelle Vines and Maddie Bilbrough, have been selected for the Youth Sailing World Championships which will take place in Brazil in December.

Phil Lightbody, 29er UK Class Chairman, comments: "We're so pleased that Typhoon will be continuing its relationship with us, supporting the class as a whole, as well as individual teams to help them reach their full potential.

"Our sailors love Typhoon's extensive product range with its dinghy specific selection, and would like to thank Typhoon for its generous and ongoing support."

Started in 1998, the 29er class is one of the most highly competitive youth classes in the world with 40 plus teams competing in national and international events. The powerful dinghy is a stepping stone in pre-Olympic training for young athletes with medal potential.

The Typhoon 29er National Championships will be held from the 24th-29th August 2024 at Royal Lymington Yacht Club, with many other regattas being held throughout the year at various locations around the UK.
