Ireland Bidding for 2017 SB20 Sportsboat World Championships

5th August 2014
Ireland Bidding for 2017 SB20 Sportsboat World Championships

#sb20 – Three Irish yacht clubs have expressed an interest in hosting the 2017 SB20 World Championships in Ireland.

SB20 Class President Justin Burke is also inviting other clubs to make contact and get involved with the Sportsboat bid. Ireland previously hosted the inaugural worlds – when the class was known as the SB3 – in 2009 at the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.

Burke revealed the Irish interest in hosting the world event as the Irish class prepares for its West Coast championships on Galway Bay. The one design class recently completed a very successful 22-boat national championships at Royal Cork.

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.
