A Note From The President
So UK Chairman and multiple times UK National Champion, Jerry Hill, become the 3rd SB3 World Champion, winning in convincing style from the 16 Nation all star fleet. Yet again Roger Hudson from South Africa had to settle for runner up, sailing with Ian Ainslie, and who would bet against him finally laying that one to rest in 2011. And what a sparkling perfomance from Team Saxton and Sarah Allen in 3rd and 4th slots.
It was an awesome week, with five days of great racing on the glorious Lake Garda, and with the growth in the Italian fleet, it looks good for years to come in the region, and Europe as a whole, for the SB3 fleet.
Attention now turns to May 2011, where the fleet turns to Torbay in the SW of England, for the battle for the 4th SB3 World Champion.
Expect big names, big fleets and above all, a big reception from the UK fleet, for what promises to be an amazing event, and who knows, despite home advantage, what are the chances of the UK sailors finally relinquishing the trophy they have held since its inception in 2008 in Dublin…….
Bring it on!!”
Dave Cheyne, President, World Council
