Gul Fireball National Championships 2018 – Final Results

Yachts and Yachting Report

“I wanted to thank .. all Penzance SC members, for looking after the Fireball fleet so well during last week’s National Championship.

Whilst the gods didn’t really want to know when it came to providing decent winds, PzSC members more than made up for it with their warm welcome, friendly assistance and co-operative approach. Of course, the Fireball class knows PzSC well so none of this was a surprise to us; it’s nice to know the relationship endures!”
