There has been a lot written recently about the Canford Cup. Recently discovered and
bought at auction, the Canford Cup may be the oldest sailing trophy in the World. Presented
to the Poole Regatta in 1849 by the new Owner of the Canford Estate, this trophy predates
the America's Cup by 2 years.
And who should win it but Sam Laidlaw helming Aguila in IRC3. Congratulations to Sam and his
crew for this remarkable and fantastic achievement. The QT's taking part reported back that the Poole
regatta was a great event and much enjoyed by all. We should put it in the programme for 2017.
