OUR BELIEF

ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION

Our aim is to provide up to date information on regattas, training and social events, whilst providing a sailing pathway that suits all sailors and their abilities, in all 9er classes.

The Australian 9er Association was formed 4 years ago with the merger of the Australian 29er Association, the 49er FX and 49er classes.

Our aim is to provide up to date information on regattas, training and social events, whilst providing a sailing pathway and Australian circuit that suits all sailors and their abilities, in all 9er classes.

We have members who represent the views of each state and are passionate about promotion entry level sailing to skiffs as well as supporting high performance sailors at nationals. 

If you have any training, boat or regatta questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

THE CLASSES

The 29er, 49er & 49er FX

29er

The 29er is strict one design international class aimed primarily at youth sailors and is the smaller sister to the Olympic 49er Class.

49er FX

The FX is a true high performance skiff. It demands athleticism, balance, skill and daring. The FX is a skiff that will show to the world how spectacular our sport is and what amazing athletes our women sailors are.

49er

The 49er one-design skiff has transformed dinghy racing offering performance, excitement and spectacle together with the unmatched ferocity of competition only generated in Olympic fleets.

NZ 2019 49er/FX Nationals - Day 2With 3 races to sail tomorrow and good breeze forecast for the 1pm start, there is still a lot to happen. In the FX, Alex Maloney/Molly Meech hold a solid lead over Tess Lloyd/Jamie Ryan (Australia), with just 1 point back to Austrians Tanja Franck and Lorena Abicht.
The 49er crews have got it all to play for, with Logan Dunning-Beck/Oscar Gunn leading on count back from Melbourne brothers Will & Sam Phillips. But several boats are all within striking distance, led by Peter Burling/Blair Tuke in 3rd spot, they are already dropping a UFD so need some top finishes. Issac McHardie/William McKenzie are 2 points back, and another point to Markus Sommerville/Jack Simpson who were finding better form today.
In 8 races, there have been 6 different winners showing just how tough this competition is.
