Champagne G.H. Mumm celebrate world class sailing during lavish party at Skandia Cowes Week 9/8/07

Last night Champagne G.H. Mumm hosted one of the biggest parties of Skandia Cowes Week, attended by an impressive list of sporting achievers and G.H. Mumm ambassadors. Onboard a beautiful old Tall Ship, sailing greats honoured Sir Robin Knox-Johnston (left) and his recent round the world voyage.

The guest list comprised of round the world sailors, Dame Ellen MacArthur, Dee Caffari, Nick Moloney, Alex Thomson and Mike Golding, as well as adventurers Neil Laughton and Tom Avery.

Ellen MacArthur was keen to remark on Sir Robin’s latest achievement: “It is typical of Sir Robin [to] take on the Velux 5 Oceans – one of the toughest sporting challenges in the world – showing his usual endurance, resilience and determination, in spite of being the oldest competitor in the race! I think whenever someone challenges themselves and strives to achieve their dreams then that is inspiring. Reading about Sir Robin’s circumnavigation of the world inSuhailias a kid certainly inspired me to follow my own dreams to one day take to the sea. Congratulations, Sir Robin, on yet another fantastic achievement!”

Champagne G.H. Mumm has been associated with top-class sailing for decades, its relationship with boats dating as far back as 1843 when Prince Albert baptised the famous Brunel designedSS Great Britainwith a bottle.
