Memorial Cup, new date – Weds 26th June

Sailed in honour of those who are no longer with us

The Memorial Cup is one of our special events, one that we dedicate to the memory of past members.

The race is 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

See insert for individual times, note that The Mirror start is at 18:45 (zero hour for the race). Please check your start time against the Pursuit Times and set your race watches! Note some slower classes set off before 18:45.

2024 pursuit times

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 20:00 (75 minutes after the 19:00 zero start). And we ask sailors to maintain their position as the final, finishing order is recorded.

Look forward to seeing you on the 26th June!
