Hempel Sponsors the Annual WHSC/RPCYC Regatta


Once again, Hempel was happy to sponsor the annual WHSC/RPCYC Joint Regatta.

This year the WHSC/RPCYC Joint Regatta took place on Sunday 6th September 2015 at Plymouth Sound. The event was sailed in beautiful weather and rather light winds. Darren Roach aboard of the Sentry won the Hempel Yacht of the Regatta Trophy. Darren won all three races in the very competitive Enterprise Class. Prize giving took place upon the conclusion of the three ‘back to back’ races at the Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club, where participants and visitors enjoyed refreshments provided by the bar.

Hempel supported the event with prizes, which were widely distributed throughout those who took part in the regatta and well appreciated by all recipients. “The event was a great success and the number of entrants is slowly increasing each year”, said Darren Gittins, sales manager for Yacht Coatings UK.
