Southampton’s Sailing Week Regatta

With over 60 yachts and 600 sailors out on the water, this year is expected to be the biggest year to date for Southampton’s Sailing Week Regatta.

The Regatta will see three days of racing from 16 – 18 September, with the chance to win in six cups from different industries. Due to popular demand, 2019 sees the launch of three new cups, the Legal Cup, the Financial Cup and the Technology Cup, giving businesses further opportunities for exposure as they race and network with other companies. These will join the existing Cups: the City Cup, the Women’s Cup and the Property Cup.

Partners including Rees Leisure, Sunsail and RSYC racing are excited to welcome new sailors, of any ability, on to the sea, to have fun and challenge themselves.

Ed Gould, Creative Director of Carswell Gould, said about last year “Our team had an incredible day at this event in 2018 and really enjoyed networking with others in our industry.”

With donations to both Geoff Holt’s Wetwheels charity and Southampton City Council, 2017 saw 200 children out on the water and 2018 saw a class of more than 30 children receiving a VIP day experience of sailing, getting them involved and sparking interest into a new sport.

Nikki Rees, Managing Director of Rees Leisure, says: “We are so excited to be putting this event on for the third year. We are looking forward to it being the biggest and best year yet with the aim to get as many beginners onto the sea as possible.”
