Fireball Calendar 2014

Post date: Jan 21, 2014 4:27:21 PM

The one regatta date given out in last week’s report was, in accordance with Murphy’s or Sod’s law, incorrect. This week that error is corrected and another two dates are added.

Negotiations to close out the regatta fixture list are ongoing, and at this stage we are hopeful of having the Leinsters in Dublin Bay with the Munsters at one of our favourite venues. We will also be promoting a number of other events at clubs where Fireballs are sailed, including the Skerries Regatta which takes place on 26/27 July. There is also another Dublin Bay event, scheduled for midsummer, which we will be encouraging you to attend. Details will follow!

The Nationals are being held late to accommodate a number of events that are taking place in June, July and August. Given the fleet size in 2013, we are very anxious to avoid dates that might generate clashes and might thus cost us entries. The Lough Ree event in September last year is the motivation for taking our Nationals back there.
