Top 10 Fireball Championship result for Staunton’s Simon Forbes

Staunton’s Simon Forbes takes 7th place in French Fireball Championships

Congratulations to Staunton’s Simon Forbes crewing for Paul Cullen – 7th place finish overall in the French Fireball Champs! What a result. This hot on the heels of his first place National Scorpion Championship finish! Fantastic.

Held at the Carnac Yacht Club from 22-24th August the event saw 60 boats take part from a host of nations. Whilst this was the French Champs, the event provided the ideal opportunity for international crews to scout out the venue. Giving them some insight for the Fireball Worlds, which follows on.

Well done and good luck to Paul Cullen/Simon Forbes and fellow Staunton sailors David Wade/ Richard Pepperdine and Sam Mettam/Tim Saunders who are all sailing in the Fireball Worlds – in a fleet of 100 boats.
