Fireball - Whats happening in May

With a warm and sunny April now behind us, May brings plenty of Fireball events across the country.  We have already had some great racing at the Northampton, Hayling Island and Brightlingsea open meetings. Hopefully now the weather is warmer more people will be venturing out. For all events this year we have been running  simple event registration lists, this is not a formal entry list but simply an indication for the club, class and competitors of who is likely to be attending. So if you are planning to attend any of the events visit the relevant event page on the website and fill in the form, it literally takes only seconds. This system only works if people take time to fill things in. You can of course still turn up on the day!  So whats on this month;

Brightlingsea Open - Golden Dolphin Series no.2

Penny and Ian Gibbs took the honours at their home club, report to follow. ResultsPhotos, Photos

Ogston open training & open meeting - Cancelled

We had hoped to run a one day training event and open meeting on the 14th and 15th. Unfortunately water levels at Ogston are quite low at the moment making running a training or an open meeting difficult. We will look to reschedule the training for a day or weekend later in the year!

Castle Cove Sailing Club - South West Series

The same weekend (14th/15th) sees the 1st event of the Southwest series at Castle Cove Sailing Club at Weymouth. Those lucky enough to sail at last years Weymouth Regatta will have experienced fantastic conditions. 3 races per day are planned sailing in the Weymouth bay. Event details

Rock Sailing & Water Ski Club - Golden Dolphin Series no.3 

Somewhere new for the late May bank Holiday - that was the plan. Rock Sailing Club on the North Cornwall coast is the venue for the 3rd round of the Golden Dolphin Series (& South West series)  A mix of racing formats is planned with racing in the Estuary on the Saturday afternoon and then racing in Padstow Bay on Sunday and Monday. A Bring your own BBQ is planned for the Saturday night at the club along with a meal on Sunday night. Its a great place to spend the bank holiday weekend .Event Details

Membership Reminder

A reminder for all but in particular those planning to attend the World Championships or the Nationals. A few days before the event isn't the ideal timeframe to be organising your class association membership! Full details of how to join are available on the website 

Worlds Entry

A reminder to anyone who is planning to attend the 2011 World Championships at Sligo, Ireland that entry forms and payment should be with the host club by the 16th May. Full details on the event website

Fireball News 

We have started work on the next edition of Fireball News. If you have any contributions for the next issue please send them to the Editor Lesley Scarff by the 5th June. We are in particular looking for reports from clubs and whats happening where you sail.

Fixtures List 

Please Note that there were a couple of last minute changes to the fixture calendar that was sent to members in the post. In summary the Grafham open meeting is cancelled in June and the Blackwater open is on the 2/3rd July. The correct fixture info is available on the event section of the website. A revised version of the calendar is available to download.
