Land ahoy for agency teams in yacht race

If you work at an advertising agency, this is your chance to bask in glory in front of your peers, win hours of praise from your clients, and glimpse exotic views of, er, the Isle of Wight.

The Inter Agency Yacht Race takes place on May 27 and 28 and there’s still time to sign up.

Alternatively, you could endure public humiliation, hours of grief from your client and see very little of the beautiful Solent – which is exactly what happened to the Duckworth Finn, CIA and Daewoo team which spent most of last year’s race marooned on a sand bank. But don’t let that put you off.

So land lubbers, call Mike Tunnicliffe of Western International Media or Barry Pritchard of The Planning Partnership and help them raise 25,000 for the Helen House children’s hospice.
