The Island Events Company, specialising in activities, sailing, conference and team building packages has just launched a new regatta aimed at the eco industry.
The one day Eco Industry Regatta, taking place on 20th June 2013, will bring together companies working within the eco world for a day’s fun but competitive racing followed by an evening event at a Cowes yacht club. The regatta will also be raising money for charity with the event’s overall winner choosing which eco charity they would like to receive the funds.
The Island Events Company are delighted to be working in partnership with Ecoisland on the regatta. Ecoisland is a Community Interest Company whose aim is to make the Isle of Wight the first sustainable region in England.
David Green, CEO of the Ecoisland Partnership said: “Ecoisland is delighted to support the Eco Industry Regatta. A yacht on an ocean passage is a perfect example of an ecosystem as there is a need to manage your energy, food, water, fuel and waste. We hope that the event will raise the profile of sustainability as a principle.”
Mary Scott-Jackson, a director of The Island Events Company said, “Cowes is the centre for world class sailing and an ideal venue for the inaugural Eco Industry Regatta. The regatta will be the first to offer sustainability industry companies and professionals the opportunity to network whist taking part in competitive yacht racing.”
