Montreal Sailors warm up in Barbados for Fireball World's
Some of Montreal's finest are toughing it out in Barbados right now. While we scrunch under our hulls prepping for launch, a group from the Fireball class are racing in a clime of about 30 degrees. This week wrapped up the "International Week" which is a warm up to the class' World Championship. Joe Jospe and Tom Egli placed highest of the Montreal sailors in the warm up series.
Last year at the Fireball NA's, Joe and Tom edged Guy Tipton and Matt King from the Shelbourne Harbour YC in Nova Scotia by one point for the win. Now, during this week's warm up in Barbados, the Nova Scotia team are besting them. That sets up an interesting competition for the coming week.
