Polypipe charity regatta returns

Polypipe charity regatta returns

The Polypipe charity regatta – which celebrates its 21st year in 2019, will return to Portsmouth on Thursday 5 September.

The yacht race event has proven popular with guests who attend from the building, construction and plumbing sectors.

A fleet of 49 boats took to the Solent to participate in the 20th annual Polypipe Regatta last year. The regatta was raising money for Polypipe’s charity partners Help for Heroes and the John Merricks Sailing Trust, with almost £10,000 raised during the course of the event.

Cameron McLellan, MD of Polypipe Building Products, said: “This event is the perfect chance for our customers and friends to get together and enjoy the festivities.

“Our 20th anniversary regatta was a tremendous success and raised thousands of pounds for charity. We hope to do just as well this year and raise vital funds for these worthy causes while having some friendly competition on the Solent.”

A choice of yachts will be available for guests and the entry fee includes places on a yacht, a skipper, breakfast, afternoon tea, waterproofs and regatta entry.

Last year the crew from Elliots took home the Grand Prize over second placed Squire Patton Boggs and third placed Williams.

Guests will also be invited to join Polypipe the night before sailing for a 21st celebrations evening on Wednesday 4 September at the Port House. These celebrations will include a street food supper, a welcome drink and evening entertainment.
