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.
