After what was a fantastic Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta with 16 SB20s competing for the silverware, the highlight of the SB20 season, the National Championships is now on the horizon.

The three-day championship will be hosted by the Royal Irish Yacht Club on the weekend of the 30th August - 1st September. The NOR and online entry can be accessed on the following link here

Class President Colin Galavan says 'there will be a greater emphasis on acknowledging all those battles that take place throughout the fleet with prizes for lots of different categories'.

A crew weigh-in will form part of the registration process with a weight limit is 270 kg.

The class will endeavour to repeat the buoyant turn out of earlier this month to round off 2019 and put the cancellation of its Sprint Series due to lack of entries in June behind it.
