A WHOLE NEW CHARITY EVENT!
The Furniture Industry Charity Regatta is the main social, sailing and Charity event for the furniture sector and suppliers to the furniture industry. It’s great fun and a brilliant opportunity to network with industry peers, entertain clients, and raise your company profile, all whilst raising money for the Furniture Makers Company, aiding their mission of education, excellence & support.
The regatta combines an evening charity supper along with two action packed days on the water sailing.
You can bring teams of 10 which could include colleagues, clients, partners and any key people who are important to your business. All companies who operate in, or are suppliers to the furniture industry, are eligible to attend.
The event is organised by Britannia Corporate Events on behalf of the Furniture makers company, and will use their fleet of stylish race prepared Beneteau First 40 yachts for the regatta, ensuring exciting and competitive sailing for all.
On Saturday you and your guests will arrive in Port Hamble Marina and be introduced to your skippers and yachts, after a comprehensive safety brief it will be time to depart the marina and head out on the water.
The morning will comprise of familiarisation of the yacht, learning the terminology and race training.
After a short break for lunch it will be into the racing. After a few races the yachts will head back in and teams will get ready for the charity fundraising and regatta dinner.
On Sunday after heading back to the marina for breakfast it will be back on to the yachts for the final day of racing.
Once all racing is completed the yachts will return to Port Hamble Marina where the Overall winner of the Furniture Regatta 2019 will be announced at the prize giving with afternoon tea!
Teams are then free to depart and will hopefully be looking forward to returning in 2020 to defend their trophies.
