  • 2016 Tenby Nationals: Thursday, Races 7 & 8

    photos Alistair Mackay Firefles_results_afterrace8 Race 7 (words Hamish Walker) The worst thing about ‘Big Wednesday’ is that unfortunately ‘also quite big Thursday’ inevitably must follow.

Firefly Sailing With GJW Direct

Hi,
Papercourt are hosting their first Firefly Open meeting on the 9th October.

First Start at 11am with 4 short races 3 to count.
Entry £20 (£10 for under 21) including a bacon roll on arrival and a hot lunch.

Papercourt is a decent sized lake near Woking ideal for Fireflies with some shifty conditions. Will have at least 5 Papercourt boats and hoping to get some entries from Surrey Uni and a local school.

Is also the final event of the M25 trophy. Have you won the coveted ships wheel?

Can you let me know if planning to come so I can make sure enough bacon! If need some where to stay there are plenty of us locals who would be happy to put you up.
Hope you can make it.
Will
