SINGAPORE – The SB20 Asian Grand Slam and Asia Pacific Championships concluded on Sunday, with Raffles Marina’s Magnus Ekbom, Freddie Hall and Agoston Sipos winning the competition at One15 Marina Sentosa Cove Singapore.
They finished ahead of Royal Anglesey Yacht Club’s Ewan McEwan, Chong Tan Wei, Terena Lam and Jovina Choo.
Coming in third were Uzair Amin, Mohd Saifullah Mohd, Esa Asri Azman from Malaysia’s Royal Langkawi Yacht Club.
Twenty-two teams from around the region competed in the event, which serves as a prelude to the SB20 World Championships that Singapore will be hosting in 2025.
The competition was initially planned for the Republic for the first time in 2021, but it was eventually moved to Clube Naval de Cascais, Portugal, owing to the pandemic.
The 2025 SB20 World Championships will feature 80 teams – 40 local and 40 foreign – and are hosted and organised by One15 Marina Sentosa Cove Singapore, the Singapore Sailing Federation and the SB20 Association of Singapore.
