This weekend (18/19 May) is the next Gul Golden Dolphin Event, which is being held at Brightlingsea Sailing Club. It's also the last chance to practice and check out your pace before the Gul National Championship at Torbay (25-28 May).

The Open is part of the Gul Golden Dolphin Series. Gul is continuing their fantastic support to the UK Fireball Association through sponsorship of this series, with prizes awarded to the top 3 positions in each of the Bronze, Silver and Gold fleets, as well as overall prizes in the series (again distributed through the fleet).

Remember, to qualify for the Golden Dolphin Series and to be eligible to win the Gul vouchers, competitors must be members of the Fireball Association. Membership requirements are defined on the UKFA website. The NOR and SIs are on the club website.
