Happy New Year 2023

28 December 2022



Dear Presidents and Secretaries


I send you all my best wishes for a happy New Year!

May I bring your attention to our next events:


1. The European Championship 2023 in Portoroz Slovenia 16 -22 Sept.

Please find more Information in the flyer here attached and communicate it to your members.


2. The World Championship 2024 in Geelong Australia  5 -16 Feb.

Fireball International will coordinate the container transport for the boats and subsidize it with £  5000.- per container.

Therefore, please inform your members accordingly and pass on the names of interested crews as soon as possible!

More information is available in the Newsletter Nr 1: Worlds24 Newletter#1


Further I want to announce that the current term of FI Flag Officers ends by December 2023.

According to the FI Constitution: "Council shall call for nominations for Flag Officers not less than eight months prior to the

expiry of the current term of office. Nominations shall be closed four months prior to the expiry of the current term of office."

Please note, that I will step back as Commodore.


For voting, please make sure that your NCA is in good standing.

The FI Constitution § 8.1 says:

A NCA shall be in good standing provided it has paid the annual subscription and registration and has advised Fireball International of the contact details of its current executive, the list of its members, and the list of its boats. Failure to fulfill these obligations for a period of two consecutive calendar years shall result in the NCA no longer being a member of Council.


I'm looking forward to a happy 2023 and meeting you all soon!


Your Commodore
