Spirit Yachts has revealed the details of its first ever regatta exclusively for its community of sail and motor yacht owners. Taking place from 25th June to 2nd July in Guernsey, Channel Islands, the Spirit 2022 Regatta will see a fleet of Spirit yachts race and socialise together.
Hosted by Spirit Yachts in partnership with Locate Guernsey, the Spirit 2022 Regatta is now open for entries.
Sean McMillan, CEO of Spirit Yachts, commented, “The idea for the Spirit Regatta was driven by our owners expressing interest in the opportunity to race and socialise exclusively with other Spirits. There is a fantastic community spirit and friendship amongst the Spirit owners and crews, so whilst the racing will no doubt be competitive, the socialising will also be a lot of fun.”
Based in Guernsey’s main town of St Peter Port, the regatta will comprise a six-race series of passage, round the cans, and Windward/Leeward courses organised by the Guernsey Yacht Club (GYC).
Anna Rivers, commodore of the GYC, said, “We are thrilled to be welcoming Spirit Yachts and its fleet of stunning modern classic yachts to Guernsey. Our famously tidal waters and navigational challenges will make for a competitive series and a spectacle on the water.”
Once ashore, regatta competitors and guests will be treated to a varied programme of social events in iconic locations. From welcome drinks at the 800-year-old Castle Cornet to sunset BBQs, and a glamorous prize-giving dinner, there will be plenty of opportunities for socialising. The regatta will also raise funds for the Guernsey Sailing Trust.
For its inaugural regatta, Spirit Yachts has partnered with Locate Guernsey, a Guernsey government agency established to promote the benefits of Guernsey to potential relocators.
Jo Stoddart, director of Locate Guernsey, commented, “With its beautiful beaches, bustling marinas and thriving community, Guernsey is a wonderful location for yacht racing and cruising. The Spirit 2022 Regatta provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase everything Guernsey has to offer to those who enjoy life by the water.”
The Spirit 2022 Regatta has attracted a raft of high-profile sponsors from across the marine industry. Lead sponsor WEST SYSTEM is accompanied by supporting sponsors Lewmar, Oceanskies, OneSails GBR (East), Raymarine, and Torqeedo.
