Details:

Our race ready J/80 and our fleet of four race-ready high performance SB20s (formerly known as Laser SB3) keelboats are available for hire specifically for race events.


Overview:

We have;

  • Four SB20 (formerly SB3) 
  • One J/80 Keelboat (Rogue 1), 

which are available to hire / charter for premium race events including Round the Island Race, SB20 UK Nationals, SB20 World Championships, J/80 UK Nationals, J Cup, J/80 World Championships and Cowes Week (Grand Slam).

Pre Requisites:

While we do not wish to create unnecessary barriers, you will need to satisfy us that you have the relevant experience to safely skipper and race these boats in a highly competitive fleet. This will normally entail you providing us with a racing/sailing CV by email and discussing the event and your experience with one of our staff.

Premium sails are replaced after every 33 days of racing/sailing (so on average will have had 16 days use). Standard sails are older. Overseas SB20 sailors may hire our boats and bring their own sails if they prefer.

The available boats are:

  • SB20, Phantom Menace (SF1) - Sail Number 3291 
  • SB20, Attack of the Clones (SF2) - Sail Number 3244 
  • SB20, Revenge of the Sith (SF3) - Sail Number 3234  

* The keels of all three SB/20s weigh in at 327kg each, the maximum keel weight permitted by class rules, therefore giving you the best righting moment possible to help you sail flatter and faster. The hull weight of each boat is within 9kg of the minimum permitted weight, again ensuring you are competitive.

  • J/80, Rogue 1 (2013) - Sail Number 1426
