Pairs Competition for the Class A Shield and Cariad Cup
Awarded to the team with the lowest combined points in racing up to Thursday evening. Offshore races count as two place points – no discards.
For those new to the regatta, the pairs competition is a way to encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas as well as to encourage social mixing between crews, and of course to add another element to the competitive side of the regatta. We suggest you take some time out during the week to invite your buddy boat round for a drink.
