This is a huge event with 54 teams and 280 sailors taking part in two categories; the under 16 Juniors sailing in RS Feva dinghies and the under 19 Youths in Fireflys. In 2019 the under 16 Junior category was expanded from 24 to 30 teams due to demand and a phenomenal 210 races were held.

The Durlston Sailing Squad had two teams entered: Durlston Court HW consisting of Harry West, Daniel Vaughan, John Cameron and Sean Jardine; and Durlston Court MT made up of Max Tait, Jacob Cross, Freya England and Evie Cameron. The teams were the two youngest at the event by some margin and the aim of the event was valuable experience for future years, with expectations of picking up any wins against the much older competition, representing top Sailing Clubs, Public Schools and class squads, slim.
