Set sail for Ramsgate Week

Ramsgate Week, sponsored by London Array, was officially started yesterday by the Mayor of Ramsgate.  The annual regatta, organised by the Royal Temple Yacht Club, has a full schedule of races taking place throughout the week, with close to 100 boats expected to attend.

This year, Mike Perham, the youngest ever person to sail the Atlantic and the world single-handed, is competing at the evnet.  The regatta will finish with a prize giving on Saturday 30 July, where Thomas Bonnichsen, Construction Manager for London Array, will present prizes to some of the competitors.

Thomas, who is based in Ramsgate, said: “London Array is proud to be the title sponsor of Ramsgate Week 2011.  It is a fantastic event that brings local people together and attracts visitors into the area.  As our construction base is, and our operations and maintenance base will be, at the Port of Ramsgate, we already feel very much part of this community.”

Members of the London Array team will also take to the water as part of Ramsgate Week, when they will head out to sea aboard Scarlet and Oyster – and Oceanis 42 and a Legend 36.
