Location: Helford Passage, TR11 5LB
Date: Saturday 14th March 2020, race time 12:30pm
This annual event was created to provide an opportunity for over 20 local crews to race against each before the World Championships, and see for the first time how their winter training is going.
The start point for Heat 1 races is at the mouth of the Helford River, by the August Rock buoy, mimicking the longer Scillies St Agnes race length. The Final is designed to be the same length as the shorter Scillies sprint heats.
