Shooting Gazette - - Shoot briefing news -

The Royal Berk­shire Shoot­ing School (RBSS) has joined forces with Sun­seeker Lon­don and Boo­dles to cre­ate a brand new shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion com­plete with an en­vi­able prize fund.

The Sun­seeker Boo­dles Cup, which of­fi­cially launches on Oc­to­ber 1, will chal­lenge guns to qual­ify for one of 20 places at a fi­nal that will see them face 25 tar­gets from the RBSS high tower.

The even­tual win­ner of the fi­nal will be able to choose be­tween a stun­ning week long trip for eight peo­ple to the Cote d'azur cour­tesy of Boo­dles’ James Amos (left), Sun­seeker Lon­don’s David Lewis and RBSS’ Dy­lan Wil­liams.

Sun­seeker Lon­don on a fully crewed lux­ury yacht, or jew­ellery from Boo­dles worth £80,000.

Should no-one hit the re­quired 23 tar­gets in the 25-bird fi­nal to win, the high­est scorer will leave Berk­shire with £5,000 cour­tesy of RBSS – the largest ever cash prize in a Bri­tish clay shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

And the high­est-scor­ing weekly en­trants dur­ing the 100-bird qual­i­fy­ing stage will be in­vited to the fi­nal to shoot-off for a chance to win an ‘Ul­ti­mate Shoot Din­ner’ hosted by wine writer Will Lyons worth £10,000 cour­tesy of Berry Bros. & Rudd.

Dy­lan Wil­liams, manag­ing direc­tor of RBSS, said: “This world-class com­pe­ti­tion will ap­peal to both game and clay shoot­ers. De­signed to sim­u­late high pheas­ants, the se­quence is dif­fi­cult – and once you add a good help­ing of pres­sure at the fi­nal it will cer­tainly be chal­leng­ing! Be­ing able to keep a cool head and re­mem­ber­ing foot­work will be key to win­ning.”

The Sun­seeker Boo­dles Cup will run un­til Jan­uary 28 and the date for the fi­nal is yet to be con­firmed. For more in­for­ma­tion visit
