Champagne G.H Mumm Ladies Day @ Skandia Cowes Week

Nominations needed now!
 Now we need YOUR nominations.

The day’s sponsor, Champagne G.H. Mumm, in conjunction with the regatta organisers Cowes Combined Clubs (CCC), is pulling out all the stops to support the day and a host of supporting sponsors and suppliers are providing fabulous prizes and fun activities especially for women attending the regatta on the day itself.

Plaudits for all women competing at Skandia Cowes Week
With more women than ever competing at this fabulous eight day sailingfest in August – over a third of the 8,500 sailors racing - Champagne G.H. Mumm Ladies Day embraces female sailors ranging from corinthians and those overcoming difficulties in order to sail, to those who have perhaps more publicly undertaken remarkable challenges and achieved extraordinary results.

CCC is delighted to announce that the Double Olympic Gold medallist Shirley Robertson and Elaine Bunting, the Features Editor of Yachting World will join them in selecting this year’s recipient of the G.H. Mumm Ladies Day Trophy. The panel will shortlist five nominees, all of whom will be invited to join the exclusive early evening Champagne G.H. Mumm Ladies Day Reception and Award ceremony, at which the winner will be announced and the exquisite Isle of Wight Glass Trophy will be presented by Dame Ellen MacArthur in front of an invited audience, including the media. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston will present the champagne prizes and each of the five nominees will receive a Champagne G.H. Mumm Voyager Kit (a champagne chiller, perfect for using on a boat) and the winner will also receive a Magnum of G.H. Mumm.

Each nominee will also receive a fabulous Goody Bag containing a selection of Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare products, a bottle of Cockburn’s LBV Port (LATE BOTTLED VINTAGE) a Henri Lloyd Washbag, an invitation to a Volkswagen Touareg Unlimited Day and and National Boat Shows are supplying two tickets to the Southampton and London Boat Shows. And if that’s not enough, the overall winner will also be presented with a highly prized Corum watch.

Nominations close at midday on Friday 3rd August. Full details and nomination form at : www.skandiacowesweek.co.uk

Try your hand at radio-controlled Laser racing

Racing high performance radio controlled yachts is an exciting, challenging and very satisfying pastime and all-comers to the Event are invited to have a go with a radio controlled Laser.

A number of local Cowes-based owners have kindly volunteered their boats and their time to enable members of the public to sign up for a 15 minute race off Cowes Parade by Trinity Landing. These will take place between 1800 and 2000 on Sunday 5th August,
on the Ellen MacArthur Trust Charity Day (Mon 6th Aug), and on Champagne G.H. Mumm Ladies Day (Thurs 9th Aug), when racing will be just for the girls. Donations to the Ellen MacArthur Trust will be welcomed from all those competing.

To take part, all you need to do is sign-up at the Event Information Point on Cowes Parade and, subject to availability, you can try it for yourself.
