Earlier this month, Assist Insurance Services Ltd once again took part in the Insurance industries Lutine Lineslip Regatta, which is a two-day prestigious sailing and social event for the insurance industry. With many of the insurance industries top insurers participating in this prestigious event, Assist were up against some tough opposition. Coupled with some very tough weather conditions cancelling any racing on the second day! However, with 4 races on the first day, the Assist team managed to achieve one first place, two seconds and a disappointing sixth position, resulted in the team securing second overall! Our Beneteau F40 ‘Lancelot II’ certainly served the team well!
The event has been held for the last 19 years and runs in conjunction with Lloyd’s of London, home of the most respected insurers in the UK.
This was designed as a fun and busy yet competitive couple of days and provides a good opportunity to network with industry peers, whilst also fundraising for a good cause. This year we were fundraising for the AHOY centre, a water sports based charity changing the lives of people and building life skills through sailing. AHOY provide opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk youths and work in the community to help others.
The 2019 Assist Insurance team were Steve Leech (Director) Kate Buckley (HR) Liam McWeeney (Compliance), Dayle Williams (Customer Services) and sailing with Assist were: Tony Harris (KGM Underwriting Services), Olly Mays (Canopius), Gary Eastman (Bramptons) and Ian Collier (Tingdene Marinas).
