Point Yacht Club hosted the last event of the 2018 Lipton Cup, the prize giving dinner, in an Islander Room and Quarterdeck which were packed to capacity.
Master of Ceremonies, Craig Millar, welcomed all present after which Lipton Cup Trustee, Mike Peper addressed the competitors and guests. He thanked the convenor and the organising committee and Point Yacht Club for hosting a successful event.
After a delicious entree, regatta convenor Jon Marshall and Commodore Greg de Beyer presented the trustees with Lipton Cup plaques and thanked all sponsors, sailors, the race officer and bridge team and all other support staff for their participation in the event.
Each team was called forward and presented with a plaque and their club burgee before the formal presentations were done.
A sumptuous main course preceded the final presentations of the evening. After the initial trophies were awarded, overall winners Royal Cape Yacht Club were honoured with the prestigious Lipton Challenge Cup. An emotional address by skipper Roger Hudson culminated the formal presentations of the evening.
Dessert then completed an event of which Point Yacht can be proud.
All that remained was for the all the sailors present to celebrate with the manager, skipper and crew of the victorious RCYC team, festivities that continued late into the evening.
Congratulations once again, Royal Cape Yacht Club!
