It has been almost 30 years, but the International Fireball Association of Victoria is heading back to Cairn Curran to run the 2014 state championships. With the support of Chapple's Cairn Curran Estate – the fleet will be competing as a part of the Cairn Curran Classic being run on the 22nd and 23rd November.
Arthur “Smiley” Chapple has been a supporter and sailor in the fireball class for many years and has once again agreed to help the class. There has even been talk of him teaming up with Cairn Curran stalwart Craig Ginnivan to get his old “red” boat out to take another crack at the title.
Anyone with a fireball is welcome to attend, and the class has an association boat available for a small fee for interested participants. Please contact Chris Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
