Gill is the official clothing supplier for Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week sailing regatta for yet another year. The regatta will take place on 11th to 18th August offering a mix of competitive sailing and social activities.
Throughout the opening weekend, Gill will be running a race to see who can don their racing gear the quickest, with instant prizes up for grabs in the lucky dip draw. The Gill stage is situated in Cowes Yacht Haven.
All competitors can enjoy a 10% discount throughout the duration of the regatta. The offer is available at Aquatogs on the High Street and Gill in the Yacht Haven.
In addition, Gill has teamed up with Sunsail Racing to offer a competition with a host of prizes available, including charter of a Sunsail F40 for a weekend racing in the Gill Sunsail Racing Series and Gill technical gear. To enter, visit gillmarine.com or fill in an entry form at Gill or Sunsail in the Yacht Haven.
Gill technical gear is worn by many of the crews during the week and in addition they have created a bespoke collection of official event merchandise inspired by the rich heritage of the regatta, while sporting a very modern, contemporary feel including polo shirts, technical t-shirts, rugby shirts and caps.
Cowes Yacht Haven also recently played host to Her Majesty The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh on the final day of her nationwide Diamond Jubilee tour. The royal pairing visited the marina on 25th July to meet representatives of a number of locally based charities. The yachts in the marina were dressed to impress and hoards of people gathered to meet The Queen.
During her visit The Queen spoke with representatives of The Sail Training Organisations, The Island Youth Water Activities Centre, Cowes Sea Cadet Corps, The Maritime Volunteer Service, The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, The Sea Scouts, The RYA's "On Board" Project, United Kingdom Sailing Academy and Cowes Sailability
The organisations share a common goal of encouraging people into sailing.
