The organisers of Skandia Cowes Week (2-9 August) are delighted to announce that Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare, the regatta’s Official Skincare Sponsor, is also sponsoring the 3rd annual Ladies Day, taking place this year on Thursday 7th August.
Founded in 1995 by Liz Earle and Kim Buckland, Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare is Britain’s largest independent beauty brand. The range is a worldwide phenomenon with customers in 82 countries around the world. Originally Liz and Kim made Naturally Active Skincare for themselves – they wanted a botanically-based skincare range that delivered outstanding results. Every product they have developed is easy to use, fuss free and provides a dependable and highly effective pampering treat; the perfect partner for Ladies Day.

Liz Earle Ladies Day recognises the achievements and contribution of women in sailing, from those who have overcome difficulties in order to succeed to those who have undertaken remarkable challenges. The highlight of Liz Earle Ladies Day will be the champagne reception when the coveted Ladies Day Trophy will be awarded by Dame Ellen MacArthur.
In 2006 it was fitting that the late Betty Moore should become the first recipient of the Ladies Day Trophy. Aged 88 and having sailed in Cowes Week every year since 1947, she provided the finest example of a woman making a remarkable contribution to sailing. Last year, the Trophy went to Gavia Wilkinson-Cox in recognition of her sailing achievements in the Dragon class and, more importantly, for her pro-active work heading the Sail for Gold Campaign, raising funds and awareness for the sailors of the British Olympic and Paralympic Teams since the 1990s.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2008 Liz Earle Ladies Day Award. To find out more and to get a heads-up on the fun and pampering activities planned in celebration of Liz Earle Ladies Day, visit www.skandiacowesweek.co.uk
