Sail-World.com : Luck of the Irish - 1st Laser SB3 Worlds in Dublin

Luck of the Irish - 1st Laser SB3 Worlds in Dublin

'Volkswagen Touareg Laser SB3 National Championships'    Around The Cans    Click Here to view large photo

Dublin Bay in Ireland will be the venue for the first ever World Championships for the Laser SB3 Sportboats – the world’s fastest growing keelboat. The National Yacht Club will run the event next September and the huge fleet of 120 boats will be the largest ever assembled in Irish waters for a single make keel boat event.

NYC Commodore Con Murphy spoke of the significance of the event and it’s status in international sailing:

'The SB3 is an out and out racing boat which has had explosive growth since it began in 2000. There are now 400 boats worldwide – raced by many national champions and Olympic sailors. This is the hottest boat in international racing and we are delighted to be the first country and club to host their world championships'.

The Championships are expected to be an Open event and competitors will be travelling from all over the world. Strong teams will travel from the Middle East, USA and as far away as Austrialia and New Zealand as well as many European countries.

There are still some details to be sorted as event Chairman Rory Byrne explained:

'We will be seeking a commercial sponsor for the event and are having discussions with a number of firms and expect to make an announcement at the end of January. Logistically to cater for a fleet of 120 wet sailing boats will take some planning – but we are getting great support from many organisations. It will be the best single make sailing championship ever run in Dublin Bay'

Formal 'Notice of Race' will be published at the end of January 2008.
