Why host the Championship Finals?

The Championship Finals is one of the premier team racing events in the UK and is the culmination of the university team racing season. The competition can be fierce and the difference between the top teams very slight, making for excellent racing and good spectating.

The main motivation for hosting Finals should be to run a great event for all teams. In recent years, clubs have benefited in many ways from running a well-planned and financially disciplined event.
