We are pleased to announce that entries for the 2017 event are now being taken.
The UKFSC is the National Sailing Championships for the Firefighters of the United Kingdom. The Event is held annually at the end of April in The Solent and with the help of our sponsors, we raise money to help many charities.
It is also open to other 999 services, with entries from Police and Ambulance crews. We also extend an invitation to Fire Services from other countries and our sponsors to participate.
We are looking for new sponsors, so if you're interested in finding out more please email us.

Many of you will be aware that our event follows on from the weekend that the NHS regatta is held. A number of our competing teams are chartering boats for a training day on Monday and therefore taking over boats on Sunday evening, giving Sunsail very little time to turn boats around. Racing will always incur breakages and damage and it has been noticed that in some cases the boats are not as in good condition as we would like. Discussions between Sunsail and UKFSC have been taking place and it has been decided to move our Challenge back into May.
