We have some new committee members onboard for the 2010 Season aswell as existing members changing roles.
Richard Anderton joins as Open Meeting Co-ordinator taking over from Andy Smith. Andy has done a great job for the past couple of seasons and is taking a break from Fireballing to campaign a 505.
Richard has been sailing Fireballs since 2004. One of his first events was the Tiger Trophy where he was unable to finish as his mast fell down, having snapped at gooseneck level. Richards been a been a little more successful since (he is particularly adept at head butting shrouds) and is now paired with Matt Findlay in 15031.
Lesley Scarff joins to bring us a new version of Fireball News. Lesley who sails at Shoreham Sailing Club has recently purchased a new boat with husband Stewart which is newer than Richards, not that is at all important. If you have any ideas for articles and features Lesley would love to here from you, as her job will be that of Editor not author! The aim is to have the first of the new format ready for publication in May after the World Championships. If you have ideas for one off articles or a series of features please contact Lesley.
