This inter-livery Regatta is organised by the City Livery Yacht Club, and is the highlight of their programme of events. 

Livery crews battle it out for the Lord Mayor’s Cup.  The format is for members and crews to meet informally at one of the local Club houses for a buffet supper on the Friday evening with the action taking place on the Saturday.  There are (hopefully) two races “round the bouys"  the first commencing following a dockside briefing on the Saturday morning and a second race commencing in the early afternoon.  

The Island Sailing Club’s Race Officer will run both races.  The ISC also offers members and guests facilities to watch the races from their terrace.  The Regatta weekend concludes on the Saturday evening with a Presentation Dinner, usually at the Royal Yacht Squadron.
