Typhoon announced as the headline sponsor for this year's championship

Typhoon International and the United Kingdom Fireball Association announce that Typhoon is the headline sponsor for the 2004 Typhoon Fireball National Championship.

Porthpean Sailing Club, St Austell, Cornwall is to play host for the Championship which runs from the 21 – 27 August 2004. The racing will take place within St Austell Bay, which is a wide-open bay ideally angled to take best advantage of the prevailing south-westerly winds.

Competition at the front of the fleet is looking as hot as ever. 2003 European and 2004 World Champion Andy Smith will be looking to try and add the UK National title to his list of achievements. However the 2000 World Champions DJ Edwards and Vyv Townend are back together for the Nationals this year so the competition should be sizzling.

There are ten races scheduled over six days with a lay-day mid week. For more information see www.fireball-dinghy.org.uk
