The Top Gun is an amazing weekend of tight racing between the top eight university team racing teams in the UK, featuring the black tie OUYC Annual Dinner on the Saturday evening. The Top Gun 2018 will be held on the 10th-11th February.

This is an invitational event; there are no applications as there are for the Magnum. We look very carefully at teams’ performances over the first half of the season and will send out invitations early in the new year.

With only 8 very good teams the quality and quantity of racing is excellent at the Top Gun. For a report on last year’s event see here: Top Gun 2017


With enormous thanks to our sponsors Moët Hennessy and West Berkshire Brewery.

Last year’s champions: Cambridge University (Top L-R: Hugo Sloper, Tim Gratton, James Pinder. Bottom L-R: George Hopes, Jamie Webb, Cat Wallace)
