Ryde R. C. Hants & Dorset Championship Regatta announces New Main Sponsor.
Since 2012 the Cowes based shipping company Carisbrooke Shipping have been the main sponsors of the Club’s Annual Hants & Dorset ARA Championship Regatta and during this period and before they also made generous donations to the Club to help purchase much needed equipment. Sadly Carisbrooke Shipping have advised us that they are unable to continue as the Regatta’s main sponsor for the 2017 Regatta – although the strong relationship between the Club and the company remains in place – and the Club would like to acknowledge and thank Carisbrooke Shipping – and in particular Robert Wester and Ian Walker – for their support of the Club over many years which has undoubtedly contributed to the Clubs development and success and to establish the Ryde R. C. Regatta as one of the most successful and popular in the Association.
The Club is also delighted to announce that TLM Laser, the Laser marking and engraving machines and systems company has agreed to take over as the Regatta’s main sponsor.
