MOFSC Sharpies defect for Fireballs Worlds

The majority of Sharpie sailors at MOFSC have taken up the offers of sailing Fireballs for the upcoming Nationals and World Championships to be held at the club from the 27th December 2011 to 7th January 2012.
Ally Boocock and Trevor Date have both taken up roles of skippering secondhand Fireballs and are already training most weekends on the prestene waters conditions off Mandurah.
Ally is skippering a club Fireball called 'Cowboys' with crew Katie Mitchell and Trevor is skippering Darren Reynolds Fireball 'Gattaca' wih Darren as forward hand. The fleet has been boosted with such skippers as Gordon Lucas making a return to Fireballs. A great many of overseas compectors from UK, Europe and Asia are making the trip downunder and the renown SA fleet will be also very strong and compective which also have ex Sharpie sailors involved.

Therefore the Mandurah Sharpie fleet look like hitting the water in January 2012 for the second half of the sailing season.

Good luck to the WA Sharpies attending the QLD Nationals. 
Trevor Date
