Polypipe Regatta 2013

Polypipe Regatta raises over £5,000 for the JMST
The 2013 Polypipe Regatta marked the 15th anniversary of the charity sailing event for the property and construction industry, the event has raised a staggering £125,000 for a range of charities since 1998.

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 15th anniversary, in September 2013,  62 yachts took part. 

The regatta uses Sunsail's full fleet of thirty-two 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. 

Over the years the event has raised money for various charities, as well as the John Merricks Sailing Trust through entry fees, raffles and forfeit contributions. This year the Polypipe Regatta supported Sunsail's partner charity Sail 4 Cancer and the John Merricks Sailing Trust. 

The Polypipe Regatta 2012 raised over £5,160 for the John Merricks Sailing Trust.
