Sail a Fireball this Season!
Post date: May 01, 2014 11:0:15 AM
The International Fireball is a fast, lightweight, high - performance two person dinghy. Because of its hull shape the boat is quite stable and relatively easy to sail by any experienced dinghy sailor. The class welcomes new sailors around Ireland and is actively encouraging the sale of boats not in regular use. We have a very active calendar of International, regional, club racing and training events. See the current list of boats for sale below : as a class we can offer advice and help about buying a boat. Although the boats are not cheaply built they are beautifully constructed and set-up and remain fully competitive for a very long time. There are boats for sale to suit almost every pocket - if you don't see one that suits you here please contact us directly and we will help - we'd be delighted if you could join us on the water this season!
