About the event
This annual event traditionally brings together two or three flotillas of ocean-going boats that compete as teams in name of The Baltic Exchange, Lloyd’s of London, and The London Stock Exchange. In recent years, we have agreed with several other City-based sailing clubs to mutually open our summer / post-summer events, so we might have other teams competing, e.g. Bank of England, John Lewis, and other City of London and bank Sailing Clubs.
On Friday 15th September evening, crews gather in Cowes for dinner and light refreshment, in concentration for the athletic feats of the following day. Early on the 16th, a starting gun will see the flotillas race off neck to neck round a dedicated course within the Solent. After the racing and the traditional ‘apres’ social on Marina and nearby watering holes, Saturday evening the motley crews regenerate themselves into a glamorous gathering from 1830h for Dinner at the Royal Yacht Squadron and perhaps prize giving, if the winners can be decided.
Companies or groups may enter boats and crews in the Racer or Cruiser categories for their respective Teams; if you are not part of one, please get in touch as we will be seeking to accommodate individuals on Team Baltic boats in need of crew.
If you have never sailed, don’t be daunted – this is a perfect chance to try it out!
