The Punting Challenge in Detail The challenge is an opportunity to demonstrate elegance, skill, fitness, power and luck in both punting and investment. It is also a chance to demonstrate asynchronous swimming, market-making, game theory, career planning, hedging, tail risk management, making and keeping friends. Punting is both easier and harder than it looks - but above all it is to be enjoyed with friends in a beautiful setting. Practice and instruction are typically organised on the Sunday before the seminar actually starts and depending on demand, or need, also on the Monday.
