Inter Livery Yacht Race 2019

Company News

Congratulations!  The Plumbers win the Inter Livery Yacht Race at Cowes on 18 May 2019.

Under tricky the conditions of light winds and strong tide in the Solent the Plumbers’ Company stormed to victory to win the Lord Mayor’s Cup at the Livery Regatta this weekend. After a postponement because of insufficient wind the race got underway at 13:30PM. The light winds and strong tide called for careful and expert navigation and sailing – a very challenging race. All the Livery competitors and spectators had an excellent weekend.

The Plumbers’ entry was sponsored by PM Antony Paterson-Fox, PM Steve Hodkinson and Past Steward Ian Puddick. Our team was led by Assistant Janet Rivers.
