Survitec Group Marine Industry Regatta
INDUSTRY REGATTA: Marine Resources won the 2016 Survitec Group Marine Industry Regatta beating off stiff competition from 14 other teams in tricky blustery conditions this year.
The fleet of Sunsail Match 40's left Port Solent marina 9.30am on 1 June with the first of three extremely competitive races seeing Marine Resources leading the fleet off the line and into an unassailable lead.
Marine Resources also won the second race with some excellent boat handling skills in the blustery conditions.
The final race win went to Wetsuit Outlets, who picked their way through the front of the fleet as the wind dropped and then built again.
Marine Resources was awarded first place in the regatta and presented with the Boating Business Trophy, with the second place Greg O'Brien Trophy going to Wetsuit Outlet.
This fun but competitive event, sponsored by Survitec Group, raises funds for both the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation and the John Merricks Sailing Trust and is a great way to get together with other marine professionals and to entertain clients and staff.
A cheque for £1700 was presented to Ian walker (JMST) and Richard Percy (ASSF) by Hannah Burrywood (Survitec Group) and Mike Shepherd (Marine Advertising Agency).
