Annual Match against the Bar YC

We have sailed a match against the Bar Yacht Club most years since the mid 1950s. Honours have been fairly even over the decades. Since 2016 we have sailed this annual match at Seaview Yacht Club in Mermaids. We have not yet agreed with the Bar how to sail the event this year.
