The Quarter Ton Cup once again returns to the Royal Yacht Squadron in 2021. With three days of inshore racing and up to four races a day on the Solent competitors can look forward to some intense competition on the water.
A part of what makes this event special, apart from the closeness of the racing, is the diversity of the designs and designers. It would not be uncommon in a fleet of 22 boats to find 16 different naval architects represented which is unheard of in modern fleets. Back in their day, so many young naval architects cut their teeth in quarter tonners and with the growth of strict one designs and lack of any level rating box rules in small boats, that opportunity simply does not exist.
As well as celebrating a vast range of designs, the fleet is unique in welcoming a diverse range of competitors from trans-ocean racers to world champions, alongside a handful of previous winners and newcomers to the fleet, making for an exceptional line-up. And with almost every team realistically capable of winning races, we can expect plenty of twists and turns come the first start gun.
We look forward to welcoming you all.
