2010 Fireball World Championship
Barbados

Over 70 entries from 15 countries are registered for the 2010 Fireball World Championships, including entries from Japan and Russia.
On the water the prevailing easterly trade winds, predicted to be between 12 and 20 knots, and warm temperatures expect to combine for superb sailing conditions. Racing will take place in Carlisle Bay, while on the western side of the island there will still be some waves to ensure some exciting racing.

The traditional Fireball format is an international week regatta in the first week to get every one acclimatized, followed by the World Championships in the second week.

Off the water, a programme of great events has been lined up including; steel bands, an Irish night highlighting features for next year's event, entertainment evenings by Mount Gay and Banks Beer, a special reception evening with Barbados Prime Minister, Hon. David Thompson and of course, plenty of great food!

There will even be a special event Postage Stamp. The Barbados Postal Service will be producing a series of stamps to mark the 2010 Fireball World Championship. This is a huge accolade for the International Fireball Association!! The official launch for the stamps will be on 23 April!
