Ovington 29er

Originally introduced in 1998, Julian Bethwaite’s revolutionary 29er is a pure and simple design, offering a fun, high-speed ride, at a relatively affordable price. An ISAF recognized class, the 29er has quickly become the boat of choice for high performance youth sailing and training. Simple control systems and light rig loads create the perfect sailing package for all ages and genders, especially youth sailors.

Construction:

Hull & Deck - Isophalic polyester FRP with foam sandwich laminate for stiffness and light weight.

Daggerboard and Rudder – Aluminum with foam core making them light and strong. Alloy rudder head with vertically lifting rudder blade.

Spars - Composite topmast with aluminum alloy lower sections, aluminum alloy boom, composite bowsprit.

Sails - Fully battened mylar mainsail and jib with a fiber weave giving superior shape, stability, and a long life, while saving on weight and avoiding stretch. Tri-radial spinnaker cut for shape stability and longevity.

Other Features:

  • Self tacking jib allows the skipper or crew to play the mainsheet upwind, also makes down-wind gybing a breeze.
  • Neat jib luff attachment and smooth, snag-free, spinnaker chute entry and exit.
  • Mainsail cuff improves slot performance and aerodynamic efficiency and neatly encloses the control lines and halyard systems.
  • Capsize recovery is straightforward as the daggerboard is close to the water surface when the boat is on its side.
