Drinks Trade Regatta 2017
10 intrepid Zonal sailors took to the high seas for the annual Drinks Trade Regatta for the 2nd year in a row. The Zonal team was joined by latest family members Rhys, Gemma and Matthew from High Level Software and the experience was one that will not be forgotten!
The Drinks Trade Regatta, formerly known as the Interbrewery Regatta is an annual team building and industry networking event. Each team raises money for charity and the top three overall teams donate a percentage to a charity of their choice.
The regatta offers brewers and suppliers from the hospitality industry around the country a chance to get together and participate in some fantastic round the cans racing. Hosted in the beautiful racing waters of The Solent, the event featured seven races over the two days and concluded with a gala dinner at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes on the Saturday evening.
The Zonal team were delighted to be battling it out against companies including Jägermeister, Diageo & Young’s and coming 6th was an amazing achievement for our sailors.
The team benefited from incredible weather which remained throughout the three days on the tides. The team worked closely together despite nearly witnessing our very own Director of Account Services, Joel Chapman falling overboard!
Zonal couldn’t have completed the race without their skipper and first mate Mark and Dave, their support, knowledge and professionalism was greatly appreciated by the team.
