2017 Prize List: lots of lovely things.

It gives the Captain and me the greatest pleasure to be able to announce the most exciting news since the Darlings, La Falconesse Lady Steampunk Helen and Agent Darling, said, “Yes, we believe in you – go ahead … race teapots!”. We have been offered sponsorship from a wide variety of institutions for the 2017 Splendid Teapot Racing series. It is our great pleasure to list them here – with links.
