The company will make personalised trophies for each of the 13 winners in the awards, as part of a new partnership with Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting magazine, which organises the British Yachting Awards.
The British Yachting Awards is an annual celebration of the cruising and racing worlds and includes categories for the best boats, kit, clothing, sailors and more.
The winners are announced at a ceremony at the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge on 30 November, 2021, and will be featured in the February 2022 issue of Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting.
Jeff Webber of Davey & Co said: “We were delighted to be asked to be involved in this project. We considered it a wonderful opportunity to give something back to an industry that has supported us for the last 136 years.
“We are proud to be a part of these awards. Looking at the scope of the awards from young sailors, through cruising and racing awards, we would like to wish both the winners, runners up and all involved fair winds and smooth passage in their future voyages.”
Now one of the UK’s oldest marine companies, it is based in Colchester under new ownership.
Davey & Co still specialises in traditional boat repair materials, tools and classic boat fittings. Most fittings are produced in the UK in bronze/gunmetal or brass. The philosophy of quality handmade fittings hasn’t changed over the years and is underpinned by the company’s position as an MOD supplier since its inception.
The Davey product range famously includes items that have been in production throughout most of the last century, and are still produced in the same way, from the same patterns, today.
Largely made in the Midlands of England, Davey & Co offers genuine cast bronze, brass, and galvanised fittings. Additionally, Davey has embraced the future with a range of newly designed products hand made in Britain with the same traditional flare and quality the company has become known for.
