Coutts Quarter Ton Cup 2017

Yet again the Quarter Ton Class is privileged to have the support of Coutts.  We hope that Coutts is looking forward to the 2017 edition of the Quarter Ton Cup as much as we are.

The Quarter Ton Cup will be held in the central Solent, using windward-leeward courses. A large entry in excess of 30 boats is expected with extremely close racing, as is the norm for this class.  International Race Officer Robert Lamb and his SolentXtra team will manage the racing as has been the case for some years now.

The Royal Southampton YC is the organising authority (in conjunction with the Class) hosting the entire event out of Cowes.  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.

There will be a skippers briefing at the upstairs bar on Tuesday 12th September at 1800 to be followed by the Coutts Welcome Reception.

In 2016 an excellent BBQ was held at Cowes Yacht Haven.  This is to be repeated this year on Wednesday 13th September.  The event prizegiving and dinner will be held at Cowes Yacht Haven too, on Friday 15th September.
