There are over 20 Fireballs at Draycote, with virtually all taking part in the racing. The fleet is very active and is
one of the largest in the club. We reckon that there are about 50 Fireballers in total, ranging from 19 to 60 years old and 8 to 16 stone in weight. We started out with old boats, but there
are now a lot of White Winders in the fleet. And when the open-meeting circuit hotshots turn up we can generally give them a pretty good run for their money.
But we haven't forgotten where we came from, and you can still race your old composite or wooden boat in good company
here. We run 'A' and 'B' fleet racing so you don't have to compete with the cheque-book mob. Although, if you are any good, you'll probably beat a lot of the white items anyway, as most of
our sailors are, er, not exactly world champion material. That's cool - we don't want to take this stuff too seriously. We are here to have fun racing Fireballs rather than indulging in any
of the other nonsense.
