Entering the Silicon Cup is quick and easy

There is a range of well prepared, fully insured racing yachts available to charter, with professional skipper and first mate. Or, you may enter your own. 

The event helps those less fortunate, and all profits are donated to the three event charities: the Genie’s Wish, the Andrew Simpson Foundation, and the Greig City Academy sailing programme. 

We’re on our way towards achieving our ambitious target of raising £2 million for good causes – but we need your help.
