Regatta to run alongside TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show

TheYachtMarket.com is creating a new three-day sailing event, which will run at the same time as the TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show.

The Regatta will run from September 17 to 19 and will feature three Cups:

  • The City Cup – pitting teams from cities across the UK against one another for victory on the water
  • The Women’s Cup – a day dedicated to all-female crews
  • The Property Cup – bringing businesses from the property industry together to race on Southampton Water

Richard W. Roberts, CEO of TheYachtMarket.com, says: “Getting people out onto the water really is a mission close to our hearts at TheYachtMarket.com. We have some of the best waters for racing right on our doorstep here in Southampton and it’s such a shame that so many people haven’t had a chance to get out on it. That’s exactly why we decided to take matters into our own hands and create a brand-new regatta that will let people do just that.”

TheYachtMarket.com Regatta also aims to support worthy causes. A percentage of entry fees will be split between Geoff Holt’s Wetwheels and Sail 4 Cancer.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show takes place from 14-23 September 2018 and is set to be the biggest and most incredible celebration yet, offering 10 unforgettable days, showcasing the past whilst navigating the future of the marine world. Early Bird tickets are now on sale, with two children under the age of 15 going free with each adult. For more information visit: www.southamptonboatshow.com
