Poole YC is looking forward to welcoming the Fireball & Osprey fleets on Sat 21 May - Sun 22 May. We can only hope that the last year's spectacular conditions are repeated. The forecast is looking warm with a medium-strength breeze.

The NOR, SIs and online entry can be found at: www.pooleyc.co.uk/events/7543-osprey-fireball-open

Please help the club to plan by completing entry form and paying by bank transfer in advance. You will see our generous refund policy should things not work out.

You are welcome to arrive anytime after 4pm on Friday. With the online entries, registration should mainly involve you drinking tea or coffee! The catering team will have their usual Friday evening barbecue, which everyone is welcome to join.

The tides are perfect for sailing. We will have a meal at 6:30 p.m. in the clubhouse on Saturday. There will be free tea coffee and cakes on both days to reward you for coming.

If you wish to stay overnight in the Club grounds, please contact the office directly on 1202 672687

Come and join us and enjoy the wonders of Poole Harbour and get your last Open Meeting practice in before the National Championship!
