SB20 Pennant Series
Designed by Englishman Tony Castro and first launched in 1902, the SB20 is an exciting sports boat. It’s strict one design results in blistering speed down wind and extremely close racing upwind. The SB20 is one of the fastest growing one design fleets with over 700 boats worldwide. Racing is technical by nature and attracts some of the best sailors in the world. Each boat is sailed by 3 or 4 people with a maximum crew weight of 270kgs.
There are almost 50 SB20’s in Australia with 14 of those sailing from the Derwent Sailing Squadron and still growing. The 2015 Australian National Championship were held on the Derwent River and conducted by the DSS.
