To many, this is the most important event in the Club's calendar. Now in it's 69th year, the annual race and rally from a start line near Fort Gilkicker to Cherbourg, which for many years has been started and finished by our Club President, Brian Stewart.
To be eligible to win the Lutine Bell the skipper must be a member of Lloyd's Yacht Club but the yacht does not have to be owned by a member and can therefore be chartered or borrowed! If you do have your own boat, it would be fantastic to see you on the start line and, indeed, in Cherbourg!
For those not wishing to Race, the event is also a rally so that everyone can meet up for a supper in the yacht club on the Saturday evening in Cherbourg. Tickets for the dinner are priced at £27 each, and are available on the web-site. Please do book as it would be fantastic to see this dinner well attended for our 75th year celebrations. Prize giving will take place at the dinner.
The race starts on Friday evening, with the aim to enjoy the French sun on Saturday and returning on Sunday. This year, 2013, the race starts on Friday 7th June and spaces are available. If Lutine is full and you are interested in chartering a yacht for this event, then please let the Committee know.
