When we heard that the UKFA were making the Fireball Nationals a special 40th Birthday celebration event and holding it at Marazion, we just had to take a small
chunk of the Draycote fleet down there to support them. Eleven Draycote boats attended, bringing the overall entry up to 68. And although most of the pictures seem to show it a bit cloudy, the weather
was fantastic. We had an offshore F3-6 for the first 3 days, a day off, and then an onshore F3-4 for the last 3 days. The sun shone enough to make sunblock a must, although the water was a bit cold,
hence the occasional drysuit.
