Sportsboat World launch SB20 Grand Slam Stefano Grasso
Founders of Sportsboat World, Alan Hillman and Jerry Hill, have today announced the launch of a SB20 Grand Slam circuit that will take place in Europe in 2013. The SB20 Grand Slam will consist of three events that have been scheduled to take place at three favourite SB20 sailing locations.

The SB20 Grand Slam will kick off in Hyeres at the beginning of May (3rd – fifth) with three days racing before heading to Malcesine, Lake Garda for the second Grand Slam event (24th – 26th May). The third SB20 Grand Slam will take place at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week (3rd – 6th August), where a special race format has been agreed with the organisers.

The SB20 Grand Slam events are aimed at those in the class that enjoy sailing in beautiful places and enjoy a lively social scene; which will be set up to support each of the Grand Slam events. Each SB20 Grand Slam will have a winner in its own right and while sailors will be encouraged to take part in as many events as possible, there will not be an overall Grand Slam Champion.

'One of our missions when we formed Sportsboat World was to provide events that would appeal to sailors internationally; in top locations with great socials' explains Alan Hillman. 'The SB20 Grand Slam will do just that and we’re really looking forward to kicking these events off in 2013.'

Further details for each event will be announced in the coming months. Keep in touch via our website and our Facebook Page.

A Few Rays – What to know about your skin?

That’s a good thing right? – So we don’t blow up every time we take a swim or go out in the rain. Likewise so we don’t dry up in the sun.
