Jospe and Egli compete at Fireball Worlds 2011 in Ireland

Two of Montreal's finest have just done one of the more competitive world-level championships, the Fireball World's. Veterans of the class, and its international competitions all over the globe, this year Joe Jospe and Tom Egli (PCYC) traveled to the Sligo Yacht Club on the northwestern coast of Ireland to race for two weeks. They placed 3rd overall in the International Week which was the precursor event and 26th out of 59 boats in the World Championship. Curiously, the standings show DNCs in the last two races. Another Canadian team, Guy Tipton and Mathew King did superbly finishing 21st overall.
