SB3 worlds not on same scale as Dublin

4th September 2009
SB3 worlds not on same scale as Dublin

SB3 sailors at home are asking if those behind the International Class Association are going 'too far too soon' with the new design. After a massive inaugural World Championship in Dun Laoghaire last year with 136 entries, the 2009 event in Portugal this week has 56 entries.


Only one Irish boat is competing. The opinion at home is that the world championship should be staged bienially, but those behind the international class association are pressing ahead with Lake Garda in Italy slated for next July, a date that clashes with Cork Week. Any thoughts on this? Leave your comment below.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
