Notice of Race Released

The Notice of Race can be found here.  There has been a delay in releasing this as the Quarter Ton Class has been waiting for formal confirmation of its new affiliation with the RYA, thus allowing it to be the Organising Authority for the Quarter Ton Cup.

Entry forms and social tickets can be found here.

Coutts Quarter Ton Cup 2018

The 2018 edition of the Quarter Ton Cup will be held in the central Solent from Wednesday 20 June to Friday 22 June, using windward-leeward courses. A large entry is expected with extremely close racing, as is the norm for this class.

The Quarter Ton Class is for the first time the sole organising authority, having gained affiliation with the RYA.  The shoreside venue will be Cowes Yacht Haven.

Boats will be berthed in Cowes Yacht Haven with onshore activities held in the Cowes Yacht Haven Event Centre.  The race office is to be sited in the Solent Room.

International Race Officer Robert Lamb and his SolentXtra team will manage the racing as has been the case for some years now.

There will be a skippers briefing at the upstairs bar on Tuesday 20th June at 1830.  There will be an open bar to follow.

For the third year in succession a BBQ will be held on the Wednesday evening.  The event prizegiving and dinner will be held at Cowes Yacht Haven too, on Friday 22 June.
