       MAXIMUM ENTRY REACHED 6 MONTHS BEFORE SB3 WORLD
                        CHAMPIONSHIP


Many of the world’s top sailors are among the 120 entries recieved by the
National Yacht Club who have now reached the maximum capacity for the event.

Sailors from 12 countries are confirmed – including New Zealand, Australia, USA,
Dubai, France, Italy – as well as large entries from Ireland and the UK.

Initially the closing date for entries was June 1st – but interest has been way beyond
expectations, as National Yacht Club event Chairman Rory Byrne, explained:

“There is amazing interest in the event, when you consider the logistics of a full team
and support travelling to Dublin Bay in September. It just shows that this really is the
premier racing event in these Islands this year”.

Among the 50 Irish entries are last years national champion and olympic sailor Tom
Fitzpatrick.

The UK entries include Craig Burlington and Geoff Carveth both previous European
Champions.

The SB3 (Sport Boat, 3 persons) is the fastest growing fleet of keel boats in the world
and the World Championship promises to be one of the most exciting sailing events ever
held.
