In the SYC Cup the keelboats were treated to a brilliant 2 day event in great weather. Other than offshore, every format of racing was provided – with a pursuit, round the cans and long inshore making this a true Corinthian competition – some might say in the style of the Admiral’s Cup of old!
The Pursuit race on Saturday morning was really well attended and it was great to see a huge number of the boats staying on for the round the cans.
Particular thanks to Shoreham Sailing Club. For the first time in a long time, the Black Rock Long Inshore was run as both a joint keelboat and dinghy event. The sight of keelboats and dinghies racing East along the shore to Brighton must have made a great site for all those enjoying a day at the beach. In fact at one point the race fleet attracted the attention of a drone! The footage we are still trying to seek out.
Thanks again as always to Warwick Baker for being the on the water photographer, images for sale click here
