Presented by the then Commodore Jeff Baker and Jackie for the annual pursuit race to Newlyn.
This pursuit race was first run in 2007 and at that time it was considered by the Sailing Committee to be a ‘one-off’. However, it attracted a large entry and has been popular ever since. Part of its attraction is that it coincides with the Newlyn Fish Festival.
Originally conceived as a pursuit race, the format of a corrected time race with self-timed starts and finishes was preferred.
From 2020to 2022 no passage races were run (covid) and the Newlyn Race has not been scheduled since.
