Eight boats will race head to head in the event, each representing one of the charities that are being supported by the Duke & Duchess. The winning team will be awarded with The King’s Cup, a historic trophy which was first presented in 1920 by King George V.

Their Royal Highness’s will not only be hosting the event but also competing as skippers of individual boats in the race! Spectators will be able to watch the race action from the shore with live feed played over screens set up around the race villages.
