SB20 Class announce 2013 World Championships at COYCH Hyères France Katie Ashworth/SB20 Class
The SB20 Class World Council have now announced that the class will host their sixth World Championships in Hyères, France in 2013. Racing will take place between ninth-13th September and will be hosted by the internationally acclaimed COYCH.

COYCH has a wealth of experience running excellent national and international regattas including the Hyeres Olympic Week and the Club was recently named by the ISAF as the host for one of the six Sailing World Cups. Entries for the SB20 2013 Worlds are expected from over 15 countries with crews coming from as far away as Australia, Singapore and the UAE. The number of entries, which will exceed 100 boats, will be significant from Italy, UK and Russia while the French entries will represent about 30% of the total fleet.

The SB20 fleet has experienced strong growth in France recently; the local class is supported by the dealer, Marçon Yachting, base in Martigues. 'In France, we are delighted to host the SB20 World Championship next year, a truly international class' explained Edward Russo, President, SB20 World Council. 'One of the key ingredients in a successful SB20 event is choosing the correct location and we are confident that by awarding the Championship to COYCH in Hyères we have ticked this very important box!'

The SB20 will be exhibited at Salon Nautique de Paris from 7th–16th December at the Porte de Versailles. To view a new SB20, built by White Formula in the UK, please visit stand number EF90.

The Notice of Race for the 2013 SB20 World Championships will be published over the next few weeks. For registration and more information visit the event website.
