Join in on a great day of team racing and windsurfing – book Cuppers at Grafham Water on Tuesday 18th June and enjoy the famous lunchtime BBQ. Transport by coach departs from Queens’ backs – meet 10:30am – and you will be back in time for May Balls. Take a look at last year’s event to see what you might be missing.   Go straight to Windsurfing.

Team Racing Details

Event Format

The sailing format will be a Round-Robin league, seeded into different ability fleets, followed by semi finals and finals. Teams are two helms plus two crews, and we allow up to two entries per college. Furthermore, we permit a joint entry from two colleges if neither college can raise a full team.

Cost

Cost is around £15 a person (i.e. £60 a team), but you can claim back from your College JCR. This cost includes the lunchtime BBQ, which runs for most of the day.

Some Cuppers Advice

It is always sunny for Cuppers, so bring your suntan cream! Headgear is also useful if you or your team members are not used to ducking under the boom in a dinghy. Non-slip footwear that can get wet is essential. Buoyancy aids are available – but please bring your own if you have one.

Safety: Inland waters can sometimes harbour infections. Although the Club has never experienced a problem at Grafham, it is good practice to cover any cuts with a waterproof adhesive dressing – and wash hands before eating.
