International Group of P&I Clubs

I have contacted the Shipowners Club who have reported that they have no record of the LEBBIE ever being insured by their Club. I have checked our own vessel search facility and the vessel is not insured with any of the other International Group Clubs. I would be grateful if the records could be updated to reflect this new information.
