Icom will be providing radio communications to the Royal Temple Yacht Club (RTYC) in Ramsgate for their annual regatta, on from the 21st of July, through to the 26th. The Ramsgate Week regatta has been a feature of the town's calendar for over 100 years and is widely recognised as the friendly regatta.

Icom UK will be supplying the organisers six IC-M73 marine handheld VHF radios to help with the communications between land and water. Race management team, race control and committee boats will use the marine handhelds to oversee the event and to ensure any emergencies are dealt with quickly. In addition, the company have supported the event by sponsoring a buoy and radio prizes.

Andrew Beaumont-Hope the Commodore on behalf of the RTYC said, 'The radios will help us to be more responsive to any emergencies and overall to improve the management of the week. We are extremely grateful for Icom's support and look forward to continuing our long and lasting relationship with them as our communications supplier.'
