Sunsail Events, experts in organising corporate team building sailing events, have announced ‘The Automotive Challenge Cup’, an inaugural team racing event in aid of BEN, the automotive charity. Setting sail on Thursday, 18 June, teams spend the day learning the ropes and racing against each other, on board the only matched fleet on the Solent, meaning any team can win. This makes it the ideal event for networking, welcoming new clients, and thanking and strengthening existing relations with employees and customers.
This event is open to anyone working within the automotive industry and for every yacht entered, Sunsail will donate £500 to BEN. Sailing experience is not required and entrants will find everything they need included in the entry fee; a dedicated skipper and first mate, breakfast and afternoon tea in the Portsmouth Harbour Yacht Club, lunch on-board, clothing, plus professional race management. The entry fee is just £1,895 (excl. VAT) for a maximum of 10 people per yacht.
Michael Hlavaty, Account Manager at Sunsail Events commented; “We are really looking forward to the launch of the ‘Automotive Challenge Cup’ and the opportunity to help a deserving charity by raising awareness and funds through the novelty of an event on water, not on the road. The industry is in a great place to really embrace the event and hopefully we will see plenty of boats entering the regatta, making it a great success.”
Adding to this, Kelly Neal, BEN’s Events and Exhibitions Manager said: “Thank you to Sunsail Events for their support, the organisation of this exhilarating new sailing challenge and for their donation of £500 per yacht. We are very excited at BEN to promote an event with a difference. Sailing as a team is a wonderful way to network with others in our industry, advertise your company and, helping our industry colleagues finding difficulty with day to day challenges at the same time.“
