Mercedes III and Pastime II will take on Couta Boats C97 and Gemfish with the winning Association determined by the best team results.
The Guineas Cup is held the evening prior to The Cup regatta run by RYCV. The format is based on 2 Classics racing 2 Coutas over 3 windward leeward races.
The Couta boats tend to do well in open water conditions when at times the Couta boats have amazed the classics by achieving a lower elapsed time around the course than the larger classics. Hence the Guineas Cup challenge.
