Cowes Week offer

A new idea from Skandia Life, sponsors of Cowes Week

Friday May 24th 2002, Author: Nigel Cherrie, Location: United Kingdom
Skandia Life have announced a fresh thinking initiative to support several competing teams taking part in Cowes Week this year, in addition to their title sponsorship of the week-long yacht racing festival.

The concept is that teams that have displayed passion, courage, commitment, creativity or contribution (Skandia’s core values) in the past could be selected to join the ‘Skandia Squad’ for this year’s event, which runs between 3-10 August.

The winners package will include payment of entry fees, branding of all boats (if class rules allow), crew kit, media coverage and the opportunity for the crew to have Olympic gold medallist Iain Percy on board for a day.

To enter a boat for a place in the Skandia Squad, crews should contact Skandia (on the addresses below) with stories of passion, courage, commitment, creativity, or contribution by the 1st July. A committee made up from the Skandia team and Cowes Combined Clubs will choose the entries that most closely represent relevance to the core values to make up the final Skandia Squad. The team members will be announced in early July.

The postal address for entries is:
Skandia Squad Entries,
Southampton, SO14 7YE.
