18th - 25th August 2017 - Lyme Regis, United Kingdom
It is with great pleasure that the UKFA in association with Lyme Regis sailing club can announce that the entries for the 2017 Gul Fireball Europeans & Nationals is now open.
The first round of early entry closes on the 19th March.
We are expecting competitors from all over Europe, and interest is already registered from competitors from Australia, Kenya, Canada, and South Africa.
Lyme is one of the best sailing waters in the country. It is situated on the South Coast of England and caters for the whole family. Launching from the harbour, adjacent to a large sandy beach, the race area is in full view of the shore. With a prevailing wind from the South West, it is likely that sailing conditions will be near perfect. There is a full schedule of 10 races planned over 5 days.
A full social programme is in place, and with a family friendly atmosphere, this is an event not to be missed. Families can explore the Jurassic coast and with Lyme Regis being a major tourist attraction there is something for everyone. Exeter is just 30 miles away.
Lyme Regis is part of the Heritage Coast, and easily accessible from all the main sea ports.
