90th Stonehaven Cup Regatta

Royal Brighton Yacht Club – 3rd to 8th January 2019

STONEHAVEN CUP SERIES

In January 2019, Royal Brighton Yacht Club will host the 90th Stonehaven Cup – the longest continuously contested junior one-design dinghy trophy in Australian yachting. This is the first time the competition will be conducted using the new RS Quest dinghies. This is an historic occasion for both the Stonehaven Cup competition and RBYC – the trustees of the Stonehaven Cup.

The Stonehaven Cup is a friendly competition for boys and girls under the age of 19 years who represent their respective participating clubs. It involves 3-crew sailing in the new RS Quest dinghies.

The Stonehaven Cup itself is won by an individual boat. However, clubs may also nominate a team of three boats to contest the Otto A. Meik Perpetual Teams Trophy. Scores for the teams event are calculated from the placings of the team boats in the Stonehaven Cup races, including the invitation races.

Join us to celebrate this historic event

  • Make friends and have fun
  • Enjoy the excitement and challenge of one-design, close-quarters racing
  • Compete in a friendly inter-club racing environment
  • Meet other sailors from local and interstate clubs
  • Enjoy the camaraderie, and build long term friendships with competitors from the other clubs

RS Quest Three Crew Open Series

Our primary objective in running a 3-crew open event is to provide opportunities for less experienced young people to be introduced to the Stonehaven Cup competition and community under the guidance of adults.

That said, there are no age restrictions; and crew size may be 3 or 4 to accommodate a wide range of crew configurations. The RS Quest can comfortably carry up to three adults, so you might for example put together a crew of one or two adults with one or two young people, or you might be three young adults who have aged out of the youth event. There are plenty of options. You are all welcome, so get your crew together and get down here.
