GUL Fireball Nationals 2020 Logo

After the difficult decision to cancel the Nationals in July and the unavailability to book a later date in 2020 with WPNSA we thought we would be without a Nationals this year.

We’re now really pleased to announce that we have managed to secure a new venue and dates to hold our Nationals which will be at Hayling Island Sailing Club from 1st - 4th October.

This will be a joint Nationals with the 505 class who have already secured the dates with HISC. HISC and the 505s have welcomed the idea of sharing a joint Nationals and we would like to thank everyone for making this opportunity possible under these challenging times.

This is of course subject to COVID-19 restrictions being relaxed to allow double handed sailing. We hope this will make for a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable event. Further details will be available in due course.


Hayling Island Sailing Club is the proud to be able to potentially host of our Gul National Championships in 2020.

The event will run from Thursday 1st October through to Sunday 4th October 10 races over the 4 days.
