Ellis Brothers take the Fireball European title - Going into the final day, with strong wind accompanied with driving rain, poor visibility and the prospect of ever growing swell as the tide ebbed, the Race Officer erred on the side of caution and decided early that there would be no more racing. In the fleet there was a mixture of disappointment and relief. The news meant that James and Dan Ellis take the title in the fleet boat, well done boys!
