Take Part in the Britannia Cup!
Make the most of your visit to Britannia Yacht Club. Take part in the informal Britannia Cup Laser Championships on Friday 8th June for your chance to win the prestigious Britannia Cup plus cash prizes.
This year marks the event’s third anniversary and it will be held the day before the start of the Laser Inland Championships.
First race starts 4:00pm. No long unforgiving windward legs, the Britannia Cup focusses on short, punchy races. We will get in as many races as we can before the light fades with each race around 30 minutes in duration. Meet for prize giving and dinner in the club after (blazers encouraged!).
All the entry fee goes into the prize pot, which will be split among top 5 to 10 sailors (distribution will depend on the size of the fleet/pot). Entry Fee $25.
Juniors can enter for free but are not eligible for the prize fund.
This is an informal event. No NOR. No SI's. No pre-registration and no protests! Just put your money in the cup and sign the register before you go on the water. Good friendly competitive fun following normal BYC club rules of sailing. All sailors are invited to join.
