Current form shows Royal St. George and Royal Irish Yacht Club crews are the ones to watch when the SB20 National Championships sets sail on the home waters race track of Dublin Bay at the end of this month.
RSt.GYC's Michael O'Connor steering SIn Bin won the most recent SB20 encounter at the Northern Championships on Strangford Lough in May. Before that RIYC's Bad Kilcullen, skippered by Stefan Hyde got the season off to a flying start in April's Greystones inaugural.
The three-man Sportsboat event will be held over three days (29th 30th June & 1st July) on the Bay.
It's the first time in a long the SB20 Irish Championships is being held in the middle of the Summer rather than at a traditional end of season date.
As regular Afloat.ie readers will know, the SB20 European Championships are also being held on the Bay this year and will be hosted by the Royal Irish Yacht Club in September.
