SB3 World Championships 2013 has now been set to launch in Coych, Hyeres, France in September.

It is an exciting time for the SB3 class in France as ownership and activitiy increases, which has been the driving force re-igniting the SB3 Class in France, and was delighted that the 2013 World Championships will take place in France where the potential for growth of the class is significant.
 
Coych was founded in 1982 and is affiliated to the French Sailing Federation. Coych boasts a highly qualified technical staff and secretariat, with a high level of experience in running world class events.  Further news and developments about Coych can be followed on their website.
 
In recent years, the SB3 Class has received numerous requests from Yacht Clubs in sailing hot spots around the World to host the classes World Championships. Bid documents are completed by interested Clubs and submitted to the SB3 World Council for review and debate. It’s never an easy task for the World Council members choosing from such high calibre invitations, but the acid test for decision making is whether the venue will deliver a high number of entries for a Championship as was the case for the last two Championships:

107 boats at Lake Garda in 2010 and 103 boats at Torquay UK. 'With the proximity of strong Italian fleet, with 35 SB3 and the Portugese fleet with 30 SB3, as well as the attraction of the Côte d’Azur in late summer, Hyeres was the best choice for the SB3 class,' explained Russo.
 
Ahead of the 2013 World Championships in Hyeres, the SB3 Fleet will compete at a European Championships in Medemblik, Netherlands, 1-7 September 2012 followed by the World Championships at Hamilton Island, Australia, 13-20 December 2012.
 
With 40 hulls currently in production, the SB3 continues to grow strongly around the world. The SB3 class provides low cost, high intensity, big fleet racing and attracts some of the most recognisable names in sailing today. With the World and European Championships calendar set for the next two years, the SB3 continues to be the boat to be sailing.
