Fitzhugh Gates

Fitzhugh Gates, our local solicitors and notaries with branches in both Shoreham-by-Sea and Brighton, are stalwart Royal Escape Race supporters and have helped this race happen for many, many years. Indeed up until recently the Fécamp race office was run by Patricia Hill who also happens to be a partner, though she is not alone in her love of sailing with Hugo also having a taste for sea spray.
