Queens Diamond Jubilee Regatta
Friday March 9th, 2012
A sailing regatta is going to take place on the Isle of Wight to jointly celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee and raise money for three local charities.
The regatta will be a one off and will take place between Saturday the 2nd of June and Monday the 4th of June.
The clubs that are organising the event are:, Bembridge Sailing Club and Cowes Town Regatta Committee, Royal Yacht Squadron, Royal Thames YC, Royal London YC, Royal Victoria YC, Royal Corinthian YC, Island Sailing Club, East Cowes Sailing Club, Cowes Corinthian YC, Gurnard Sailing Club. They are all working together in order to provide a fantastic event both on and off the water.
The charities that the event is raising funds for are the Ocean Youth Trust IOW, Island Youth Water Activities Centre (IYWYC) and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. The organisers are hoping that everyone signing for the regatta will give generously and also those attending the fund raising events that will also be taking place.
Royal Yacht Squadrons Rear Commodore David Aisher said, “There will be a great atmosphere in Cowes with the sailing and social program providing a rather unique Island event for everyone. We hope to see sailors from far and wide joining in our own special celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.”
