Firefly Events

The National Firefly Association provides Firefly owners with a full calendar of events each year. There are two main championships, the National Championships (Torbay in July/August 2013) and the South Western Championships (held in Restronguet this year in late May), In addition there are 2 main series: The Vines Trophy and the M25 Series, both designed to encourage attendance at open meetings all over the country and to give you the opportunity to win lots of trophies (and accolades, of course).

2014 Calendar

The calendar includes the usual mix of events, from seas and estuaries at Waldringfield, Restronguet, Royal Harwich. Hamble, West Kirby, Hamble and Lymington, to the smaller lakes and rivers of Rickmansworth., West Oxford, Tamesis, Upper Thames, Spinnaker, South Staffs, Budworth and Chipstead. Remember in particular the Junior Cup the day before the Tamesis open, but perhaps we may see more youngsters at similar venues this year?
