The Club entered three yachts in this year’s Cup which was held on 14 to 16 May. Members of the Club (pictured) were divided between “X-to-Sea”, an X332 skippered  by David Hunt QC, “Merlin”, a quarter-tonner skippered by James Wathey, and “Equator”, a Contessa 32 skippered by Simon Porter. X-To-Sea came second in Class 2. Equator came third, meaning that the Club had two of the top three in a field of 30-odd boats.
