HISC Fireball Sailing - Review
The Fireball is still such a fantastic boat, and just about
anyone can sail a Fireball, in almost any wind strength. The boat
is also ideal for mixed crews and can be sailed by a wide 'age'
group or weight range. Information on buying a boat can be found on
the class association website: Fireball Association
HISC Fireball Events
There a several fireballs sailing at HISC within the medium
handicap fleet. However, the class is keen to identify specific
weekends during the year when we can get as many fireballs on the
water racing as possible. One weekend a month has been identified,
and these coincide with the pennant weekends, where there will be
two races each day. The fireball class will be awarding separate
prizes in addition to those for the pennant weekend. These will
factor in such formula as the age of the boat, and the youthfulness
of the crew! We also hope to get as many Fireballs racing at Fed'
Week as possible.
If you are keen to sail and need a crew or helm, please let me
know, as there are various ex.fireballers who are keen to return to
the class and join the fun!
