The build up to the Laser SB3 Scottish Championships at Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series is looking good with up to 11 confirmed entries. Of the entries confirmed so far we have a number of travelling boats including; 3 x SB3’s from England and 1 x SB3 from Ireland. Some of these competitors will be making a family holiday travelling around the West Coast before and after the event.
The class have also extended an invite to all competitors due to race at the Scottish Nationals to join the class at the Savills Kip Regatta on 19th/20 May for what is hoped to be a great warm-up regatta for the fleet.
In other news the Scottish SB3 Fleet is pleased to announce that Bolle (the international eyewear manufacturer) will be providing support to the class during BDSS:
Also supporting the fleet at BDSS 2012 are: Portavadie Marina (free berthing), McLeods Contruction (free craning) and the Laser SB3 Class Association.
The 2012 Scottish SB3 season starts on 6th April with the SB3 Inlands in Rutland which is followed by the Sunbird Regatta at Ardrossan the following weekend. This is a fantastic early season training & racing event.
Sunday and Wednesday Local ‘East Patch’ racing will also be available from 15th & 21st April respectively. It’s not too late to join the class and Scottish Class Rep Doug Paton we would be delighted to hear from any prospective owners or crew – the class try to keep an up-to-date listing on boats and available crew.
