Polypipe Regatta raises £5,250 for JMST

The 2014 Polypipe Regatta marked the 16th anniversary of the charity sailing event for the property and construction industry, the event has raised over £135,000 for a range of charities since 1998.

Since 2009 this event has raised £25,000 for the John Merricks Sailing Trust through entry fees, auctions, raffles and forfeit contributions.

In 2014, the Polypipe Regatta supported the JMST as well as Sunsail's partner charity Sail 4 Cancer.  


Originally created by organiser, and Regional Director of Polypipe, Steve Upson, to raise money for treatment of his autistic nephew William, the Poylpipe Regatta started out with just twelve yachts and raised £1,000.   On the 16th anniversary, in September 2014,  over 70 yachts took part. 

The regatta uses Sunsail's full fleet of Sunsail F40 yachts - an identical fleet of matched Beneteau First 40 yachts, the largest one-design charter fleet in the world. Added to this are a fleet of chartered Beneteau First 40.7; First 40 and Elan 410 yachts, as well as four Pilot Cutters. 


The Polypipe Regatta 2013 raised £5,250 for the John Merricks Sailing Trust.  The funds from the 2014 regatta are still coming in....
