    Martin – many thanks for your enquiry, and welcome to the bonkers world of ownership of a wooden Firefly!

    On behalf of the NFA, I care for the class building and membership records, five hand-written ledgers and some 4200 index cards, dating back to 1946!

    Please scroll back on our Discussion Forum to late May 2012 when I was pleased to provide details of your Firefly to a previous owner, Tam Yorke. I can however, now add that her first owner (February 1962) was Charterhouse School in Surrey, who sailed her at nearby Frensham Pond SC, and her hull was built on mould number 4.

    Thanks for logging her on our Boat Register section!

    What is her name? As far as I can see, she never seems to have enjoyed such an important feature!

    Enjoy some great sailing with your Firefly!

    Best wishes … Peter Lanham … NFA BoatSearch
