Two-person boat with trapeze and symmetric spinnaker. Crew weight of 127-158Kg (20-25 stone). Designed in 1962, with numbers close to 15000. Wooden or fibreglass. Available for any price from £500 to £10,000.

In general, the shifty winds that Burghfield gets during the summer, and the subsequent need to tack quickly and often to get the best out of the boat, means that a trapeze boat is not always suitable. However, a few years ago we used to get 12 or more Fireballs racing regularly at the club, and there are nearly always some Fireballs out on a Wednesday evening or Sunday. The Fireball is a good boat to learn the principles of trapezing and symetric spinnaker work in.

More information about the Fireball can be found on the Fireball International website -, see the links page for the class association website.
