Icom UK are pleased to announce that will provide a sponsorship package to the UK 29er Class Association class and its members that sail and race the two-man high performance sailing dinghy.

Clive Grummett, Chairman, said, ‘Event management and safety are essential in running the class. Often we are dependent upon host clubs providing us with the necessary resources to run our events. Having Icom UK on board and providing radios means that we can now run these much more efficiently and make the experience for our members that much better.’

Chris Leech, Icom Marine Sales Manager, said, ’At Icom UK we have a long history in supporting the RYA in many of their activities. As the UK’s leading supplier of marine communications it is great to have this opportunity to be involved with the 29er Class which is fast, exciting, vibrant and actively encourages and promotes good seamanship. Everything that we embody as a company. Additionally being able to be an active part of enhancing the safety and enjoyment of young sailors at the grass roots is one of our core principles and is important for us as a company and we are pleased to be a partner with the 29er Class.’
