Details:

Our fleet of four race-ready high performance SB20 (formerly Laser SB3) keelboats are available for hire specifically for race events.


Overview:

We have three SB20 (formerly SB3) keelboats within our fleet which are available to hire / charter for premium race events including Round the Island Race, Stormforce Coaching SB20 UK Nationals 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.

Course Conditions:

  • Skipper to have appropriate experience
  • One person on board to hold a VHF Licence / Short Range Certificate (or higher)
  • You are liable up to the value of the damage deposit (£1,500), per incident
  • You are liable up to the full value of replacement sails (£3,000), if they are lost/stolen or mistreated
  • We will ensure the boat is compliant with class rules, however you and your crew will have to adhere to the 270kg total crew weight limits and all other class rules for SB20 class events (see class rules).

What's Included:

  • Hire of a race-ready SB20 keelboat
  • Full set of 3 standard race sails, outboard engine and SB20 class safety equipment
  • A buoyancy aid per crew member

What's Not Included:

  • Your race/event entry/class membership fees
  • Damage 
  • Storage/berthing away from the home port
  • Premium race sails (see Optional Extras below)

Optional Extras:

  • The boats come with standard race sails. If you would like to hire our premium race sails there is a additional £100 per day charge. 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.
  • Rates for Solent events assume you collect from Southampton and sail directly to the event. Optional delivery by us to/from Cowes is £125 each way. Optional delivery by us to/from Hamble is £75 each way.

The available boats are:

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

* The keels of all three boats 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.
