Join the UK Fireball Class Association at the RYA Dinghy Show, in association with Yachts & Yachting and Suzuki on Saturday 02 March (Alexandra Palace, Stand C39) where the winners of the 'Golden Dolphin Trophy' - Kevin Hope and Russell Thorne, will be presented with the unique trophy.

The Golden Dolphin Trophy competition runs throughout the year at a number of Fireball open meetings around the country. The winner is the team that has performed the best over the series.

Alongside the trophy presentation, the winner of the 2018 Fireball series prize draw will also be revealed. The winners will claim a fantastic weekend holiday at the Watergate Hotel in Cornwall for two people for two nights B&B, a surf lesson and dinner at the 'Beech Hut' Restaurant.

All the teams that entered the Fireball Golden Dolphin series in 2018 will be in with a chance of winning.

Head to the Fireball Class stand (C39) at 2pm on the Saturday (02 March), where they will be joined by Olympic Gold medallist Saskia Clarke MBE who will present both the trophy and pull out the winning ticket for the lucky recipient of the holiday.

The show is also a great place to find out more about the Fireball Class. Drop by the stand to speak to the class experts, find out more about the boats, two boats will be on display at the show, get the low down on the 2019 race season and much more.

The Fireball is a two person performance International racing dinghy with spinnaker and trapeze. It's raced in over 20 countries around the World, with this years' Fireball World Championship taking place in France, where over 100 boats will be vying for the Championship crown.
