The RS Elite Association is pleased to announce Brewin Dolphin as the Headline Sponsor for the Brewin Dolphin RS Elite International Grand Prix, to be held at the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes from 9th to 12th July 2020.

The event incorporates the RS Elite UK National Championship and an International Invitational Regatta. It is set to be the largest RS Elite event to date with a projected entry of up to 60 boats, with entries expected from the UK, Guernsey, Germany, Norway, Italy, Australia and the USA.

The RS Elite Class held a highly successful National Championship at the Royal Yacht Squadron in 2012, when there were in excess of 40 entries. Since then, the Class has grown in the UK and internationally. The 2020 Brewin Dolphin RS Elite International Grand Prix will be a showcase for the boat, which is known for highly competitive sailing by top sailors who include Olympic medallists and World Champions. The Class looks forward to returning to the Royal Yacht Squadron, where it can expect superb race management and excellent social events.

Paul Fisk, RS Elite Association Chairman has said: "The Association is hugely appreciative of Brewin Dolphin's generous commitment, which is vital to ensuring the event's success and will go a long way towards building the RS Elite fleet internationally. This announcement will boost the already high buzz of excitement around the event. We look forward to working in close partnership with Brewin Dolphin and the Royal Yacht Squadron to deliver another memorable RS Elite regatta."

Brewin Dolphin has been helping people to meet their financial goals and fulfil their aspirations for over 250 years. Founded in 1762, they are one of the leading wealth managers in the UK and Ireland, offering personalised financial planning and investment management advice to individuals, charities, trusts, institutions and financial intermediaries.

Hal Catherwood, Brewin Dolphin Regional Director, Islands & Central Regions, has said: "We are delighted to sponsor the RS Elite International Grand Prix. The event provides a real opportunity for the Class to demonstrate the attributes that have seen it grow in recent years, and we are looking forward to being a part of it."
