AN ECO industry regatta will put wind in the sails of a new events company, recently launched on the Isle of Wight.
The Cowes-based Island Events Company, which specialises in activities, conference and team building packages, is working with Ecoisland, to launch the new regatta aimed at the green industry.
The one-day Eco Industry Regatta, taking place on June 20, will bring together companies working within the industry for a day’s racing followed by an evening event at a Cowes yacht club.
The regatta will also raise money for charity with the event’s overall winner choosing which eco charity they would like to receive the funds.
Mary Scott-Jackson, one of the Island Events Company directors said: "The Isle of Wight is a unique location with stunning scenery and an amazing choice of activities and top class hotels.
"We hope to encourage more companies and individuals to choose the Isle of Wight to hold their event so they can experience for themselves all the Island has to offer."
David Green, Ecoisland Partnership chief executive, said: "Ecoisland is delighted to support the Eco Industry Regatta.
"A yacht on an ocean passage is a perfect example of an ecosystem as there is a need to manage your energy, food, water, fuel and waste. We hope that the event will raise the profile of sustainability as a principle."
