SB20 Holds Hamble Demo Day at Royal Southern Yacht Club

#sb20 – The UK SB20 class association and distributor SportsBoat World are holding an open day at the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble on Saturday, April 5, 2014, for anyone thinking of sailing an SB20 this year.

SportsBoat World, the worldwide distributor of the hugely popular keelboat, will be demonstrating a brand new SB20, built by White Formula. SB20 owners can also bring their boats along to the Royal Southern Yacht Club for a pre-season check by the expert SportsBoat World team – a great opportunity to check you're in race-winning shape before this summer's packed schedule, which includes championships in Germany, France and Russia.

Sailors interested in crewing on an SB20 for the first time this season can try one of the exciting asymmetric one-designs and meet members of the fleet. There will also be advice on buying new and used boats for prospective owners.

The open day takes place at the Royal Southern YC, on Rope Walk, Hamble, from 1000am to 1600pm. Contact [email protected] to book your slot for a demo sail, or contact [email protected] for a pre-season boat check.
