On the weekend of 8–9 September, eight crews were in Seaview, Isle of Wight, to take part in the BESA Warwick Cup regatta.
The competition was intense, as near-perfect wind conditions meant that six races were held, with crews tested on all points of the wind, offering ample material for banter in the breaks ashore.
The crew from EA Gibson secured first place overall followed closely by the Young Baltic Association (YBA), sponsored by Clarksons, with Francis and Friends in third.
The field also included crews from the Baltic Exchange, Brown Jenkinson, Howe Robinson and SSY.
In memory of Andrew Francis, a new cup was presented at the formal dinner on Saturday night. The cup went to the crew that finished in first place, from the first day’s racing, which was overall winners, EA Gibson.
