The UKFA is delighted to announce that Gul is renewing its sponsorship of the Fireball fleet for another three seasons.

Gul is providing generous vouchers to competitors in the Gold, Silver and Bronze Fleets at our National Championships, the Golden Dolphin Open Meetings, the Under 26 Championships and the Inland National Championships. Gul is also sponsoring some amazing spot prizes that we'll be giving away at the Nationals, Inlands and Golden Dolphin events.

We'll have a mannequin wearing their latest kit on the Fireball stand at the Dinghy Show to give you a taste of what you could get if you win some vouchers.

Jack Knowles, who has taken over from Mike Pickering as Sales Manager for Gul, spent time with UKFA committee members to find out more about what we do. Jack said, "Gul and the Fireball class are really well aligned. The kit we make is ideally suited to the needs of Fireball helms and crews and it's great to see so many photos of you wearing it! Gul is delighted to be supporting the Fireball fleet for another 3 years." Jack is planning to come along to the Nationals in Weymouth and is keen to go out in a Fireball - I'm sure we can arrange that!

Jack was telling us how Gul is currently working on reducing the environmental impact of their products and packaging. They have partnered with Big Blue Ocean Cleanup and are moving to sustainable packaging. It's great to be associated with a company that recognises its responsibility to keep our planet green.
