Laser SB3 UK National Championships are being held from Saturday 27 to Monday 30th August 2011. To date there are 35 entries.

Preparations are well underway in boat yards around the River Hamble as competitors ready themselves for the 10th edition of the Championships sponsored by Zhik.

The forecast is promising brisk westerly’s and Principal Race Officer, Tony Lovell of the Royal Southern Yacht Club will oversee the eleven race championship that will be sailed on windward leeward courses in the central Solent.

The cream of the UK class will battle it out for the final class championship title of 2011. Current World Champion, Geoff Carveth will be aiming to take 'The Double' for the 2011 season; Jerry Hill will want to put his disappointing World Championship result behind him and regain his previous form in the class; Craig Burlton will compete with his regular crew of Stephen White and Adam Heeley who are consistently 'quick'.

Andy Oddie in Underground Toys will be one to watch, along with Peter Saxton, Sarah Allan, Charlie Whelan and Tom Clay. All are capable of great results at this event. Stewart Reed and his crew on Finitor 7 will, without doubt, win the social award and any crews wishing to be in contention for the title would be well advised to give them a wide berth in the bar!

The class look forward to welcoming David Cheyne, former Class President, from Ireland and Martin Lossie from The Netherlands. All in all, the 10th Laser SB3 National Championships is going to be a great event on and off the water. Over the past decade the Laser SB3 has provided highly competitive one design racing at affordable prices. There are still owners sailing in the class who took part in the 2002 National Championships hosted by Warsash Sailing Club, where Paul Lovejoy, Mike Budd and Robert Greenhalgh were victorious.

Title sponsor Zhik will host the Laser SB3 class at the 10th Anniversary Party in the King and Queen Pub in Hamble on Monday night. All past and present Laser SB3 sailors are welcome to join the competitors for a beer or two from 7.30pm. Thanks also to supporting sponsors Hamble Yacht Services who’s launching and recovery facilities have made this event possible and thanks also to LaserPerformance who will be onsite providing an event repairs service during the Championships.
