Students' Shoestring Sailing - A journey to the 2014 National Championship

This film has been produced by two students who after deciding they wanted to sail a Fireball dinghy in September 2013, then restored a classic Fireball picked up on ebay that had not been afloat in over 20 years. Restoration took place throughout the winter and summer, finishing just 1 day before the 2014 UK Nationals in Tenby. 
We sailed all week in the nationals and had a brilliant time and are now looking to get a second more competitive boat to train and race in the 2015 worlds in Pwllheli, Wales.

Ian Dobson and Ben Ainsworth claim 2013 Inlands Title

An unusually warm October weekend met 34 Fireball teams for the 2013 Fireball Inland Championships, hosted by Draycote Water Sailing Club. A fickle breaze developed enabling only a minor delay to Saturdays first race. With the wind dropping in from each side of the course, the race officer finally managed to get the fleet away, albeit in a significant left shift. The early tack off the line saw a number of boats pop into the front row, although this was later partially undone when more wind on the port layline brought the first group into the windward mark. Full Report
