About the Event

The UKFSC is the National Sailing Championships for the Firefighters of the United Kingdom. The Event is held every Spring in The Solent and with the help of our sponsors, we raise money to help many charities.

It is also open to other emergency services, with entries from Police and Ambulance crews. We also extend an invitation to Fire Services from other countries and our sponsors to participate.
