Our Captain of Sailing, Liveryman Clive Hunt, is once again looking for enthusiastic Vintners to take part in the Great Twelve Regatta on Saturday 3 June at the Sea View Yacht Club in the Seaview Mermaids. 

The weekend commences with an informal buffet supper on the Friday evening, a full day’s sailing on Saturday, followed in the evening with a Reception with the Presentation of Prizes and Dinner.

Additionally the Mermaids will be available from 16:00 hrs on the Friday for a practice sail or even an informal race.  

The format remains virtually unchanged from previous years. Each Livery Company is required to have two teams of at least four sailors – the Old Guard aged roughly over forty and the Young Guard as the under forties.

Technically all sailors should be members of the Company but other family members/friends are welcome to crew as well.  

There is also a four hour Cruiser race - any Vintner with a cruiser wishing to represent the Company is welcome to contact Clive in the first instance.


We would very much like to boost our numbers amongst the Young Guard group. To this end the Company has rented a large “Vintners” house in Seaview for the week-end so as to help with accommodation arrangements/costs as well as providing a Vintners’ base.  

As those who have attended before will testify the event is not just for the sailors as families, boyfriends, girlfriends are all welcome to cheer on our sailors from the shore or spectator boats.

The Master – who will be leading our team on the water – is hoping for a strong showing of Vintners this year and a decent finishing position on the leader board.      


The event is free of charge to members.  You are welcome to bring guests at a cost of £75.00 per guest which covers supper on Friday night and dinner on Sunday evening.


If you wish to attend, please register using the link above.  You can register as a sailor or spectator

Additionally, if you wish to put your name down for accommodation in the 'Team House', please make your arrangement directly with Clive
