The Firefly is a two-sailed sailing dinghy with no spinnaker, designed by Uffa Fox in 1938. The Firefly is 12ft long and suits a crew weight of 17-24 stone. The Firefly is a popular Fleet, with Fleet Racing events drawing in many competitors. However, the Firefly's popularity really shows in Team Racing. is the ultimate Team Racing boat, used at the ISAF World Team Racing Championships, as well as being used for over 50 years at the world-famous Wilson Trophy, the British Open Team Racing Championship. The Firefly is also the boat of choice for Schools and Universities for teaching and Team Racing. Three Universities and two Schools have fleets of Fireflies at Spinnaker.
