Cowes Week is coming…..

IMG_6884For those going to the AAM Cowes week SB20 Grand Slam – you are going to be in for a treat! With the 2 races per day format that you will not experience anywhere else on the Circuit you will be amazed at how much fun you will have both on and off the water!

Saturday night will see the class barbecue where, with thanks to the class suppliers and supporters: Tony Castro, the SB20 designer; Rob White, the SB20 builder; Hyde Sails; Selden Spars; Harken deck gear (and of course us at Sportsboat World), you will have an opportunity to meet everyone responsible for the continued provision of the best value one design sportsboat racing in the universe. There may well be some light refreshments (as well as food) to ensure the evening goes swimmingly!

As well as the attendance of these fine companies we have also got a few more sponsors onboard, so a huge thanks also to Bolle sunglasses for their continued support. Also, new for us this year, Dubarry have very generously offered to support our class dinner and prize giving with some of their world famous footwear offerings.

Also not be missed…(unless you forget your jacket and tie) is the Sunday evening cocktail party on the lawn of the Royal Yacht Squadron. PLEASE remember dress code as they are strict and it’s worse (according to Jerry) than not being allowed into a dodgy Essex nightclub for wearing trainers.

We are expecting around 30 boats….it is going to be great!
