Welcome to our new Marina Administrator and Fox’s Rigger
We are delighted to welcome experienced rigger, Peter Lillingston, to the Fox’s Rigging team. Peter is a keen and competitive racing sailor, having crewed in the TP52 fleet in the Mediterranean racing circuit and Nautor Swan Regattas on board the Swan 82, Grey Goose.
After working as First Mate aboard a number of superyachts, Peter came ashore and trained as a rigger with Allspars Rigging, before moving to Suffolk to be closer to family and he and his partner have just welcomed their first baby.
Here on the East Coast, Peter crews on board the classic Stella Class, L’Etoile and brings with him a wealth of racing and cruising experience, which will benefit all Fox’s rigging customers.

We are also very pleased to welcome Deborah Wood, who joins Fox’s Marina & Boatyard as our new Marina Administrator and will be the first person many of our visitors will speak to when they call us or visit the Fox’s reception desk in our main office.
Though relatively new to sailing and, she says, still learning the ropes, Deborah is a very keen sailor and lived on a houseboat for 12 years with her dogs, Alfie and Eric, so she is very familiar with life afloat on the East Coast!
