Red Funnel committed to yacht racing
02-04-2002 For many years, Red Funnel has played a large part in supporting both sailing as a sport and the sailing community, both on the Isle of Wight and off.
Red Funnel supports several of the biggest race events in the Island’s sailing calendar, including the annual Royal Ocean Racing Club Easter Regatta, Red Funnel Keelboat Championships, Round the Island Race and Skandia Life Cowes Week.
In addition, Red Funnel is a sponsor of GBR Challenge, the British team entered into this year’s America’s Cup (the first British team to compete in the race for 15 years), and has also close relationships with Ellen MacArthur, runner up in the 2001 Vendée Globe, and Shirley Robertson, the Sydney Olympic Gold Medallist.
Red Funnel is proud to be associated with the sailing community on the Isle of Wight and is committed to working with its partners to increase awareness of the sport and bring sailing to a wider range of people.
