The SB20 UK Fleet gathered on Thursday 30th June at the Royal Southern Yacht Club for the UK Nationals Sprint Championships. Six rapid fire windward-leeward races in a decent South Westerly and building would be a great way to practise for the 3-day UK National Championship starting the following day.

Entries included John Pollard without his regular crew, Charles Whelan and Richard McAdam with Chips Howarth on board, Mark Gillett and Class Chairman Paul Hine and a certain Geoff Carveth, Simon Berry and his usual well drilled crew, Mark Brammer from oooop North, Phil Tilley our Class secretary on his new anniversary boat, Lizzie Farrington and her all female crew and Sarah Kemp, Patrick on Team Amica, Robin Kirby, Andy and an all family boat Orkun Sayer sailing with his wife, son and daughter on the UK Class Charter boat.
