The Race

Sailing Time's SB20 in-club circuit, is an umpired fleet race series of events in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki.

6 weekend events through-out the season will take place to name the club's champion!

4 boats are provided by Sailing Time for 8 invited teams.

The Format

Our format is well thought off to maximise sailing time and minimise waiting time. In this way not only you enjoy racing but you have time and energy to explore our city afterwards.

8 Teams will be divided into two groups by draw.

The event consists of two stages Preliminaries and Finals. The first two teams of each group advance to the Finals.

Preliminaries take place on Saturday with a morning and afternoon group. Finals take place on Sunday, places 5-8 in the morning, places 1-4 in the afternoon.

Every group completes 4 races of about 30 minutes each.


The Boat

The event is sailed with SB20 boats.

The SB20 is a one-design class with gennaker.

The boat is an open keelboat with a high aspect ratio keel and a very high ballast ratio. The yacht is very stable, but also quite fast due to the substantial sail area. The SB20 is unique in that it does not allow hiking, using a small stainless steel bar to prevent hiking by the crew, this allows competitive crews of all shapes, sizes and ages.


The City

Thessaloniki is the second largest city of Greece. It is famous for it's cuisine, it's museums, for it's cultural mixing and it's nightlife!
