    The first Cuppers competition was held in 1924 (i.e. academic year 1923-24) and the Yule Oldham Cup for the event dates from then. There is also a trophy for the Silver Fleet winners.

    ...
    Sailing is one of the oldest sports of the University. The Cambridge University Cruising Club (CUCrC) (opens in a new window) was formed in 1893. Just 19 years later, in 1912, sailing became a Universities sport with the organisation of the first Varsity Match against Oxford University. The 'Cuppers' inter-college team racing competition started in 1924. Half Blues were awarded for Team Racing from 1937, and discretionary Full Blues since 1982. Team Racing continues to be the major inter-university sailing activity in the UK, using Firefly dinghies. Windsurfing and Yachting competitions have joined Team Racing in more recent years, and each has achieved Half Blue status. A good general history of team racing will be found on the Wikipedia team racing page (opens in a new window).
    Team Racing is a major section of the CUCrC (visit the Dinghy Sailing page if you are interested in fleet racing and RYA training). The section's squad consists of three or more mixed teams, each competing on the University and Open circuit, in the British Universities Sailing Association (BUSA) Championships, and a Ladies team which competes in select events. Training takes place two or three times per week in our two flights of Firefly dinghies at Grafham Water. We also contest a Varsity Match, of course - at a coastal location in early July.

    Cambridge teams have always been amongst the best university teams in the country, winning BUSA regularly and rarely failing to reach at least the quarter-finals in recent years. Cambridge finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th in 2017 BUSA - a performance never equalled by any other university. Only the record of the legendary team of 1999-2000, which won BUSA and the UKTRA National Championships in 2000, remains to be challenged. Cambridge Ladies came 2nd at their BUSA in 2017.
    Cambridge hosts an annual team racing event, the Cam Cup, during the Lent Term (usually early March). Entries are by invitation only - to the best alumni and university teams in the country. Further details are on The Cam Cup page.

    A complete set of Varsity Match results to date is maintained on the Oxford & Cambridge Sailing Society website (opens in a new window). An 1898 challenge by Oxford was rejected by Cambridge because: “the Club (CUCrC) has no suitable boats to sail in such a match and, from its lists, it seems that the OUYC is not entirely a University Club”. The first Match was sailed in 1912, after Cambridge sentiment changed in 1910, and took the form of three match races – with a different helm in each of the three races and one of the other two helms crewing. The following year and thereafter, true team racing took place – normally with two boats a side. The series was interrupted by the First World War from 1915 to 1919, and the 1940 Match planned for Oulton Broad was cancelled due to the Second World War.
    {Varsity Win.jpg} Cambridge celebrate victory over OxfordA clip of the 1928 Match at Weymouth is the first item on the Video History page (opens in a new window) of the OCSS website. The Yule Oldham Challenge Cup for the Mixed Varsity Match dates from 1928, the previous (Spender) cup having been lost. The early matches, until the mid-1930′s, were sometimes two boats a side and often in dinghies. Since that time, apart from World War II when three dinghies a side were used on the Thames at Shiplake (Henley) and Ranelagh (Putney), the matches have been three boats a side at a coastal location – and in keel boats consistently since the 1950′s.
    Half Blues were first awarded to the teams in 1937 (Cambridge) and 1949 (Oxford), though half blue sweaters did not make their appearance until 1947. Full Blues were awarded, subject to good BUSA performance, from 1967 (Oxford - 2), 1974 (Oxford - up to 6), 1977 (Cambridge - 2), 1978 (Cambridge - 3), and 1982 (Cambridge - up to 6). Half Blues were first awarded for the Ladies' Match in 1959, with Full Blues being awarded from 1961 until 1979. From 1980 Half Blues were awarded to ladies who sailed in the Main (mixed) Match, with Full Blues awarded for good BUSA performance. In 2000 the current arrangements were adopted: Half Blues to anyone who sails in the Mixed or Ladies Varsity Match teams, with a Full Blue awarded to anyone who has sailed in a team reaching the last 8 at the BUSA Mixed Championships or the last 4 of the BUSA Ladies Championships of the Varsity Match year.
    The first ‘mixed team’ Varsity Match was sailed in 1984, when Julian Ellwood (Trinity) invited Jenny Pocock (Emmanuel) to crew (Cambridge won), and the same thing happened in 1990 when Ian Walker (Downing) invited Liz Walker (New Hall/Murray Edwards – no relation!) to crew (Oxford won). However, the first mutually agreed ‘both teams mixed’ Match, which Cambridge won, was not sailed until 2000 when Erin Delaney (Wolfson) and Becca O’Brien (Queens) crewed for Cambridge, and Nicole Johnson (St Edmund Hall) captained and helmed for Oxford (the first lady to do so). The following year Ari Liddell (New Hall/Murray Edwards, Cambridge Ladies Captain in 1999-2000) was the first lady helm for Cambridge – in the 2001 match on her home waters of Aldeburgh (Cambridge won). Eddie Glennie (Caius) was the first lady Team Captain of Cambridge in 2008-09.
    The Ladies Match has been sailed as a two-boat-per-side match in keel boats since 1995 – previously it was sailed as a three-boat-per-side match in dinghies, but only took place at the same venue as the main Match from 1991 onwards. Before 1991 the match alternated between Oxford and Cambridge. The date of the first Ladies Match, which Cambridge won, appears to have been 1958, and it was sailed at Oxford in flood conditions. The current trophy for the Ladies Varsity Match, the O&CSS 75th Anniversary Ladies Salver, was presented by the Oxford & Cambridge Sailing Society on the occasion of the Society’s 75th Anniversary in 2009 – previously there had been only a very small EPNS trophy.
