Brown Cup History 1959 to 2022
The idea of widening sailing competition beyond club membership to local schools was the idea of Jack Brown, the Commodore of Loch Earn Sailing Club from 1960 to 1962. Loch Earn Sailing Club began hosting an annual June regatta specifically for school-age sailors. The Brown Cup Regatta, known as the main Scottish Schools Sailing Championships began.
