Having time time to reflect on how well the Great Twelve Sailing Challenge went the weekend before last; It was entirely due to the hard work of all the staff at the Club that over 250 liverymen from the Great Twelve Livery Companies tell me that it was the best ever. From boatmen to bar staff, from waiters to office staff, everyone in the Club pulled out all the stops and rose to the occasion even though I kept raising the bar to include even more people. Although the event raises money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, the main objective is to introduce and bond members of the same Company and other livery companies to one another. Everybody is looking to have a good time and you gave them the space and facilities to do it. But of course it is more than that. You provided a happy and well managed crew to deliver. Please pass on not only my thanks but the thanks of 250 others to the staff and please tell the Flag Officers how grateful we are.
George, Great 12 Regatta
