Holt Cup - Inter Region Dinghy Team Racing

RN Watersports Centre, Whale Island HMS EXCELLENT, Portsmouth Dinghies

22 - 24/03/2019

Two boat team racing between RN regions and/or units

RNSA(P) will again host the Holt Cup – an opportunity to pit units/regions against one another in fierce nautical duels as well as select the RN Team for the Inter Services event in April (see below). The competition will be held in 2000s (possibly with a flight of Hartley 15s). The format for the event is similar to last year:

Friday – Team racing tactics session followed by run ashore
Saturday – Heats all day, RNSA AGM and Annual Dinner (see below)
Sunday – Finals and prizegiving

Accommodation for Sports Lottery members will be available in HMS TEMERAIRE. The event is open to all serving personnel with teams made up of 4 people (2 helms, 2 crew). Entries are welcomed from individual units or from regions (East, West, North, FAA). Anyone willing to act as Team Captain for one of the aforementioned regions please contact me on

Note that RNSA(Plymouth) plans to hold a similar event in Oct 2019 (at the start of the team racing season) – further details in due course.
