Oscar Cup

2017 will see us present a new perpetual trophy entitled The Oscar Cup to the winner of the Corinthian Division of the Dragon South Coast Championship. The trophy was originally donated to the British Dragon Association by Pascall Atkey & Son Yacht Chandlery in 1999, the year in which the company celebrated its bicentenary.  We are honoured that the company has agreed to present the trophy annually to the top amateur team in the South Coast Championship.
