This September a team of six sailing novices took to the Mediterranean Sea to compete in the 15th Annual IT Regatta for the Electrical Industries Charity. They began the journey not knowing each other and with a whole heap of sailing knowledge to learn. The team were to sleep, eat and sail the boat morning to night and while undertaking a completely new skill had to try win nine races against sailing professionals, hobbyists and native Croats. Easy right? Amazingly, the team of Dominic Lorenzo from Edmundson’s, Daren Pool of Triple Star Fire and Security, JTL’s Gordon Evans, the ECA’s own and committee member Martin Cordery, Alban Ford of Electric Centre and Terry Woods from Environment managed to place 11th in the regatta. The team raised an incredible amount for the EIC and we can't thank them enough for their hard work both off and on the yacht.
