The Marine Industry Regatta team is delighted to announce that Marine Resources has come on board as BBQ and prize giving sponsor for the Marine Industry Regatta 2016.

Thanks to Marine Resources, competitors attending the BBQ will be able to enjoy a wonderful spread at a greatly reduced cost.

With a band booked, Ian Walker confirmed as a guest speaker and a wonderful selection of prizes donated, the BBQ will make a great end to an exciting day.

Companies are encouraged to invite not only event competitors to the BBQ but also other members of their team to enjoy the evening's activities. Please also remember to book tickets in advance.

"It's great to see the event back again and with a new lease of life, my team are really excited about having a day on the water and are already starting to get competitive. When the opportunity came up to sponsor the event I was delighted to be able to get involved." James Ward, Marine Resources.

Mike Shepherd, Director of the Marine Advertising Agency, who are also involved with the regatta said "We're looking forward to the industry coming together for this event. It's great to have companies from across different marine sectors involved and we warmly welcome Marine Resources sponsorship of the BBQ and prize giving, which will round the event off perfectly."

The Marine Industry Regatta takes place on Wednesday 1st June 2016, sailing out of Port Solent in Sunsail First 40's. The regatta is a great way to get together with other marine professionals and to entertain clients and staff. Charitable donations from the event will raise funds for the John Merricks Sailing Trust and the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, another great reason to get involved.

With only five boats remaining for hire, companies that are interested in taking part are encouraged to book now to avoid disappointment.
