The SB20 class has cancelled its Midland Championships due to the very low number of boats signed up for this weekend's scheduled event. 

Class President Colin Galavan says 'This is due, in part, to damage incurred to some of the boats at the All Ireland Senior Championships'.

Dun Laoghaire-based Galavan told Afloat.ie 'In light of the need to assess and effect repairs to boats and also in light of the small number of entries registered for the event, we have decided to cancel this year's event'. 

Meanwhile, the sportsboat class will have an AGM in late November where a schedule of events for 2019 and some new ideas for the coming season will be unveiled.
