Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
May 27, 2011

There is a short list of keelboat one design classes that are internationally recognized AND can attract a large fleet size to their World Championship. The SB3 is one of the few classes that can pull it off, where recently ha 103 teams representing 14 nations came to Torquay, UK to compete for the 2011 World title on May 16-20.

Currently actively raced in Australia, Belgium, Dubai, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Singapore, United Kingdom, and with fleets being developed in Austria, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the USA, this is the fastest growing keelboat fleet in the World today.

Designed by Tony Castro in 2002, this 20-foot three-person sport boat merges keelboat and dinghy habits for fun and affordable one design racing. Here is a wrap-up video from their 2011 World Championship:
