Polypipe Regatta to celebrate 21st year

Registration has opened for the annual Polypipe charity regatta, which celebrates its 21st year this September.

The yacht race, hosted by Polypipe, returns to Portsmouth on Thursday September 5. The event has proven to be one of the most enjoyable for guests from the building, construction and plumbing sectors.

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

Cameron McLellan, managing director 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 is 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, with Squire Patton Boggs in second place and Williams in third.

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