Memorial Cup on 22nd June in honour of past members

Come and join us on Wednesday 22nd June, at our special Memorial Cup event, as we honour those who are no longer with us.

Run as a Pursuit Race, with the slowest boats setting off first, the race pits the tortoise against the hare, as sailors dice with the wind dropping during the evening.

Memorial Cup start time

The Mirror start at 19:00 (zero hour for the race). Please check your start time against the Great Lakes Pursuit Times and set your race watches! Note some slower classes set off before 19:00 hours!

Whether you’re an avid Wednesday night Pursuit racer or not we encourage you to come down and take part, we’ll be awarding cups in the bar afterwards to round off the evening.  The race will run until 20:15 (75 minutes after the 19:00 zero start). And we ask sailors to maintain their position as the final, finishing order is recorded.

MJ Gifford (Solo) came in second, with fellow Solo sailor Phil Honnor, hot on his heels coming in third. Twelve different classes took part, giving sailors a range of craft to pursue, catch up with and pass!
