Boats – Fireflies

    o   Highly manoeuvrable

    o   Fantastic boats to tack and gybe and are simple to sail (many people                    comment that they feel like a Laser to sail but with a deeper cockpit and a             crew!).

    o   All up crew weight is ideally between 110kg to 160 kg in fleet racing

    o   We are happy to share ALL our Firefly racing tips and techniques -and                this comes from past national Champions – helms and crews.
