SB20 events and technical updates!



SB20 National Championships
We have just returned from the Nationals, which was a fantastic event. We would like to say a big well done to Joe Llewellyn and Team on a strong win! It was also great to see visitors from Australia, Russia, Oman, Ireland, Belgium, Holland and Scotland down warming up for the World Championships in August! Having said that we’re not sure how much warming up they did as it was wet, cold and grey throughout the event. Fingers crossed the weather becomes a bit more friendly in time for the Worlds!

SB20 Cowes Grand Slam
Dates: 25 July – 5 August 2017

The racing doesn’t stop with the Nationals as the following week sees the start of the highly competitive Cowes Grand Slam. The event will start during the first four days of Cowes Week where competitors will be treated to two races per day, with some of the fleet staying on to see out the rest of traditional Cowes Week.
Take me to the Cowes Grand Slam website.

SB20 World Championships
Dates: 25 August – 1 September 2017

The countdown is truly on to one of our biggest events of the year as the World Championships come to Cows on the Isle of Wight. Organised by the world-renowned Royal Yacht Squadron this is set to be a week of intense racing, beautiful scenery and action packed shore-side socials.

For the latest information from the notice of regatta to entry details, the schedule and FAQs visit the SB20 World Championships official website.

Sportsboat World event support

SB20 Nationals: we can be found at Hamble Point and or the Royal Southern.

SB20 Cowes Grand Slam: we will have limited spares due to a lack of space at the event. We will however be travelling on a daily basis to Cowes, so please get your orders in for next day delivery during the regatta.

SB20 World Championships: we will have full spares support at the marina throughout the event.


Introducing the NEW mast protector
Hyde Sails have redesigned the SB20 mast protector with new materials that are cut to fit around the electronics whilst still preventing the jib sheet from dropping and catching on the halyard cleat.

New top covers
With the Worlds nearly upon us we have noticed far too many scruffy looking SB20’s in the boat parks. In an effort to smarten the fleet up a little bit we redesigned the cover with a convenient side entry zip, we put further reinforcing around the keel crane and added more convenient strap positions.

Top cover summer special price: £395 plus VAT.
