The Society ran its first inter-generations competition, for which records exist, in 1991, and the event immediately became a very popular one in the calendar. The competition traditionally takes place at Farmoor, with OUYC providing the organisational support because of the excellent facilities at Farmoor and the plentiful supply of Firefly flights there.
Teams are generally composed of sailors from a particular decade, and a famously opaque handicapping system makes allowances for older decades and teams that field six helmsmen. The trophy for the event is a bell, presented to the Society on its 50th Anniversary in 1984 by West Kirby SC to mark the close association between the two clubs over the years – particularly in the initiation of the Wilson Trophy.
