Fireball & Merlin Rocket Open Meetings

Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April 2019

Latest News

After Storm Hannah had swept away the Saturday racing for the eager Fireball and Merlin Rocket fleets, they returned to HISC for some genteel racing in Hayling Bay on the Sunday.

Three races were completed for each of the fleets, with Christian Birrell and Vyv Townsend taking a clean-sweep of the Fireball Golden Dolphin event, and Ben and Roz McGrane just failing to match them, but with the same end result, victory in their Merlin Rocket Silver Tiller event.
