The Sea Change Cup

Sea Change 2018 was launched with a brand new tradition, something brilliantly off-kilter, something suitably humble and something that enabled us to make our own trophy… the Sea Change Chairmans XI played the Totnes and Dartington Cricket club in the first Sea Change invitational for the Sea Change cup. Set to a mellow rumbling dub soundtrack and with live, viper tongued commentary, the 2018 festival was opened with the inaugural cricket match.

 
 
 

The 2018 Chairmans XI featured guests from Heavenly Recordings, Beggars Banquet, Raf Rundell’s band, author David Keenan and some Sea Change family ringers who all united to take the local team right the way to the last ball in the twenty over match. Authors Will Burns and Roy Wilkinson were on commentary duties with a live broadcast across Soho Radio and Soundart Radio.

 
 

It was a game played in very good spirits with our own launch cocktail the Summer Blush (that remained available and ridiculously popular all weekend at our Summersisle restaurant) getting both teams and the jovial crowed suitably charged.

And the result? Well, you couldn’t have written it. With the last ball of the game, the Sea Change XI drew level on exactly 136 runs, quite beautifully leaving the debut of the Sea Change Cup as a draw. The cup was shared (it lives currently at the Drift Record Shop in Totnes) and both teams have promised to return with a renewed zeal in 2019.

Huge thanks to Totnes & Dartington Cricket Club, Luscombe Drinks, Salcombe Gin, Soho Radio, Soundart Radio, Dartington Hall, Colony Clothing and everyone who came and played, helped, BBQ'd and drank!
