  • Tamesis Firefly Junior Cup


    23rd April 2016 12 boats made their way to South-West London for the annual Firefly Junior Cup at the TamesisClub. This event is for the children – and there seemed to be quite a few of them! The blustery northerly wind was strong enough that not many of the children managed much helming, but a […]

    Is this the future of fleet racing one designs? For many years I have grappled with trying to make sailing more attractive to stop the drop out from sailing of so many people. Boat ownership and the need to own a boat in order to have high quality racing  is one major barrier that I […]

  • Hamble Warming Pan Report

    The 70th racing season for the Firefly Class kicked off 12th/13th March in glorious sunshine at the Hamble Warming Pan. It’s fair to say that the forecast for the Saturday light, 1knot gusting 2 in fact, so it was great to see 9 boats entered.

Hi for sale is my firefly sailing dinghy. Could do with a little tidy up if you were fussy. The boat is water tight. Great for beginners, cruising and club sailing. The foredeck has got the paint bubbling and 2 hare-line cracks where the tape is. Has been like that since I bought the boat. I was going to give her an overhaul but I don't have the time due to other hobbies. Be sad to see her go but not got much time to sail her. Sails are in ok condition and useable but be no good for competition sailing. Has a rotating mast, 2 rudders, mainsail and jib. Will include the road trailer for asking price as I bought that separately. £450 ... See MoreSee Less
