Sailing success TWO COMBINED crews of sailors from Channel Islands law firms Mourant du Feu & Jeune and Ozannes enjoyed success in the Manches Cup regatta in the UK recently. Fourteen crew members from both firms entered two yachts into the sailing event, which took place in the Solent in May. Coming first overall in the Division Three handicapped cruising non-spinnaker division was the Fleur-De- Lis, while Avant Garde came third overall in the same division. The Manches Cup is a key sporting and


social event for the UK legal community, and one of the largest sailing events in the yachting calendar. Ben Robins, Partner at Mourant du Feu


& Jeune, said: “The event was great fun, and to win our division in a major sailing regatta was really fulfilling, particularly as it gave people from Mourant and Ozannes an opportunity to team up in advance of the planned merger of the two firms.”


French Chamber


visits Jersey SENIOR MEMBERS of the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain (FCCGB) have returned to the UK saying that they will spread the word that Jersey is open for business. The FCCGB, an influential business forum for companies with British and French links, held a networking event in Jersey exclusively for its patron members in May, co-sponsored by Mazars, BNP Paribas and Jersey Enterprise. While here, the patrons heard from


Senator Alan Maclean, Minister for Economic Development; Geoff Cook, Chief Executive of Jersey Finance; David Myatt, the Honorary French Consul for Jersey and BNP Paribas’ Country Head (Channel Islands and Isle Of Man); Paul Masterton, CEO of Durrell; and Connétable Ken Vibert. The FCCGB’s Deputy President, Peter Alfandary, who led the delegation, said their perception of Jersey had been changed. “The members that have been here shall take away from this weekend a greater knowledge and understanding of what Jersey really is about.”


Grand Jersey receives


five stars from AA ONE OF JERSEY’S longest established hotels, Grand Jersey, has secured five-star status. Following a recent inspection by the AA, the property, part of the Delancey portfolio of hotels, which includes Bovey Castle in Devon and the recently opened Brooklands Hotel in Weybridge, Surrey, has become only the second hotel in Jersey to be awarded the much-coveted accolade. Securing five-star status requires a


property to offer luxurious accommodation and public areas, and a high-quality menu and wine list in its restaurants, in addition to all of the expected standards of a four-star property. There are currently 92 five-star AA-listed hotels in the UK, of which the majority are in England. Anna Dowling, Managing Director


of Grand Jersey, commented: “We are delighted. It is testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of our team that we have achieved this premier ranking. It has always been our aim to provide guests with an exceptional experience by striving to give the highest levels of service.”
