The Shanghai Cup

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing restrictions, the tough decision has been taken to cancel the Shanghai Cup 2021. We are already looking at dates for 2022, and further information will appear here when available.

Cardiff Bay Yacht Club is proud to announce that the Shanghai & Nimrod Cups are planned to take place in 2021 on the weekends of 19/20 June 2021 and 3/4 July 2021.

The Shanghai Cup, as the Bristol Channel Spinlock IRC Championships 2021, will use IRC ratings and will consist of racing over two weekends, with the 19/20 June 2021 taking place in Portishead and the 3/4 July 2021 taking place in Cardiff. The regatta may also include a Portishead to Cardiff passage race after racing on the first Sunday.

The Nimrod Cup will use NHC ratings and will consist of a series of races on the second weekend only in Cardiff.

There are plans for social events in both Portishead and in Cardiff on the racing weekends. Information on these can be found in the Social section.

Information, race documents and the entry form are available on this site, as well as some history of the cup, previous results and some photos/videos. Discussion and a large collection of photos from previous regattas can be found on our Facebook Group.

Please distribute this information and website link, and display this poster in as many places as you can to advertise this event, and make it a great Shanghai Cup.
