This year 20 crews from Royal Navy establishments, including HMS Prince of Wales and RAF and Army units from as far away as Cyprus, Naples and Stavanger will test their mettle in 'the toughest sport in the world'. Military personnel give up months of their own time for nothing more than camaraderie and an almighty challenge: racing a Victorian cannon against the clock to win the coveted 'Brickwoods Trophy' and have the bragging rights of being the fastest crew in the military.
