River Yar Boatyard and Wight Marine are pleased to be supporting sponsors of the Taittinger Royal Solent Yacht Club Regatta

The Taittinger Royal Solent Yacht Club Regatta is one of the largest and most coveted events on the Solent. A popular warm up to Cowes Week, the regatta sees hundreds of boats compete in 15 different classes. Boats and their crews arrive in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, on the Friday to be greeted with fantastic hospitality from Royal Solent Yacht Club and Taittinger. Then a weekend of serious sailing follows.

Local Yarmouth businesses, River Yar Boatyard and Wight Marine, are supporting sponsors to Taittinger, but who are they?

Based just the other side of Yarmouth’s bridge, all year round River Yar Boatyard is home and boatyard of choice for many of the local entrants and RSYC members, as is Wight Marine the engineers of choice. A full service boatyard with engineers on site, it is the one stop shop for boaters; you have it all covered, from buying a boat or engine to laying up, servicing, maintenance and everything in-between.

The two businesses have long worked together and the partnership is ever increasing. The years of experience and expertise are clear, and recognisable by the agent status for leading names such as Honda and Mercury.

“We’re really excited to be working with the yacht club for the Royal Solent Yacht Club Taittinger Regatta. Many of us are members and have taken part in the regatta ourselves in previous years, so we were naturally keen to support the event,” said Jen Allen of Wight Marine “…both businesses already service the RSYC support boats so this is part of a genuine and valued ongoing relationship with the yacht club, its members and, of course, each other”

You will no doubt spot Wight Marine and River Yar Boatyard at the event, and as the local dealers for Honda Marine and Highfield RIBs, keep your eyes peeled for some exciting support on the water as well as ashore.
