NetEvidence is thrilled to be sponsoring two yachts in the 2014 EMC Silicon Cup yacht regatta for the 7th time on 11-12 September 2014.
The Solent’s choppy waters will pitch netEvidence against IT industry leaders such as Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Symantec, Intel and IBM. Its two crews will compete against over 400 sailors on 30 vessels.
Andi Willmott, Director of Strategic Business Development at netEvidence says: “Having strong relationships and partnerships with our channels and direct customers is critical to our past, ongoing and future success. Whilst this is an exhilarating experience, our participation in the Silicon Cup has proven invaluable in creating long lasting relationships, not just with our own yachting teams but with everyone who takes part. It’s this team spirit that normal day to day meetings simply cannot replicate. We all arrive as individuals but leave as crew mates and teams.”
The fundraising element of the event is significant. Silicon Cup raises funds for three children’s charities – the NSPCC, Dreams Come True and Jubilee Sailing Trust - with over £600k being raised to date. netEvidence will be working with its crews and industry colleagues to ensure this continues to grow.
News and updates on the crews, their boats, racing results and competitions will be available via netEvidence’s Silicon Cup Facebook page. Please support the charities and post your pictures and experiences.
