Please note qualifying criteria for the Golden Dolphin Series. Competitors must be members of the Fireball Association. Membership requirements are defined on the UKFA website. In summary: The basic form of membership is now that of a 'Local Member'. This category of membership is [the minimum] required for all competitors competing in Golden Dolphin-badged open meetings. Host clubs are required to ensure that all competitors are, at least, 'Local' members.

With the new Local Membership at just £8 per person, everyone can be in with a chance to win a prize that will more than cover their membership fee, not to mention the other benefits such as discounts on insurance with UK Global.

Silver Scorpion

If you've not already taken part in the Selden SailJuice or the East Midlands Mini-Series, then it's time to dust off your boat and get ready for the 2020 season.
