14 - 15 October : Arrow Trophy
The Arrow Trophy is a sailing competition between Independent Schools, raced as an annual weekend regatta, in one-design yachts crewed by former pupils. The Organising Authority is the Royal London Yacht Club and the race format is short fleet racing on Saturday, finishing up in Cowes late afternoon.
The event takes place on the challenging waters of the Solent, aboard Sunsail's fleet of F40 yachts. The yachts are collected from Port Solent (Portsmouth) on Friday, and sailed, or motored, over to Cowes Yacht Haven.
The top four teams from the fleet races then go into a series of match races on Sunday to determine the overall winner, for the Arrow Trophy, whilst the remaining competitors fleet race to determine the winner of the Charterhouse Bowl. In total, there are five trophies to be won.
