Every year the RBYC holds its flagship event
"The John Mountain Challenge Cup"
It was established to test core seamanship skills for Skippers, Mates and their Crews. It's competitive, fun, exhausting and probably the best event of the year! It is a bit like a treasure hunt on water, getting to places, completing a challenge and tackling tasks en-route.
There are two shiny cups to be won - Best Boat & Best Skipper and it is possible for a boat and skipper to win both awards, it has been done only three times before!
A club member can only be Skipper just twice giving ample opportunity for new up and coming Skippers to
have a stab at the challenge.
