Smyth and Bradley 17th at Fireball Euros

3rd October 2010
Smyth and Bradley 17th at Fireball Euros

As predicted the wind Gods had nothing to offer the Fireball fleet assembled in Pavlov, Czech Republic for their Class Europeans on the final day of sailing last Friday. They waited until the cut-off of 13:50 local time but nothing of substance emerged. That meant that the results as they stood last Thursday remained. The entry was 49 boats with GBR, IRL, SLO, SUI, BEL, GER, CZE, FRA, NAM represented. Fireball's next international event will be the Worlds in Sligo in June 2011.

1. Tom Gillard and Sam Brearey 15041 GBR
2. Tom Jeffcoate and Andy Thompson 15045 GBR
3. Jaroslav Werner and Pavel Winkler CZE 14809.
17. Louis Smyth and Cormac Bradley IRL 15007

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
