Coronation Cup

Peter Clements (WebEditor)

On Sunday the 3rd June the Coronation Cup will be contested. The racing is a different format to regular Sunday racing as it is a pursuit race. The start times for each class will be calculated, based on handicap, so the slower classes start first and the faster classes have a start time that, in theory, has them finishing at the same time. They then spend the race playing catch up. The first boat over the line wins. The start time for each class will be published on the day. The first gun is scheduled for 0900hrs so don’t be late or you’ll have a lot of catching up to do!

Following the racing, the house and social committee will be serving afternoon tea with a selection of  sandwiches and cakes for £3 per person in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
