The story so far.
After 4 round of the Sailjuice winter series the Fireball have had mixed fortunes. The Draycote Dash, Datchet Flyer and the Brass Monkey have all been relatively light wind events favouring the non-trapeze boats. The Grafham Grand Prix promised to be a cold wintery affair with a strong Northerly, however it turned out to be a pleasant sail in the sunshine – albeit still cold!
There has been a good turnout in most of the events by the Fireballs including former champions Matt Burge, Christian Birrell and Hyde’s own winter stalwart Dave Hall to name a few.
Dave crewed by Paul Constable came in a respectable 7th although a bit disappointed since they won last year.
