Action-packed UK Nationals entry open

Ten days to go until the Stormforce Coaching SB20 UK National Championships take place at the Royal Southern YC in Hamble.

There will be a Sportsboat World/Spinlock Sprint Championship on Friday, 4th September, with six quick-fire races scheduled on one day for a great warm-up for the 2015 National title contest.

Then Saturday, 5th September to Monday, 7th September sees a further 10 races scheduled over three days for the Open and National Championships, with the last start no later than 1430 on the final Monday. Besides a whopping 26 races in four days, the entry fees also cover launch & haul-out, trailer parking, on-water berthing, and three tickets to the Hog Roast BBQ thanks to the Royal Southern’s fabulous hospitality. Oh, and if you enter the Sprint Championship you’ll also be entered into a raffle to win a brand new jib courtesy of Sportsboat World and a set of Spinlock Personal Flotation Devices. This will be awarded, following a debriefing, in the Royal Southern clubhouse at a prize giving on Friday evening at 1900 – you must be present to win!
