After an exciting afternoon of close racing in Cowes we are delighted to have awarded The King's Cup to Tusk!

Bear Grylls collected the historic trophy on stage on behalf of the charity at a prize giving ceremony held at SailGP's bustling Race Village.
The regatta saw competitive racing as the eight teams battled it out in two short races. Whilst Tusk took the trophy, London's Air Ambulance came in close second, and Child Bereavement UK and Centrepoint was awarded joint third place. The Royal Foundation Early Years programme won the Wooden Spoon for eighth place.
We were delighted to welcome so many of you and your families to enjoy the afternoon's racing and family entertainment, and we would like to thank all the charities for their enthusiasm on the water!
