In June we took part in the Lutine Lineslip Sailing Regatta – an annual event where teams from the insurance industry come together and compete over two days.
Our crew of eight, along with two professional skippers demonstrated our desire and ability to be the best, improving from third position out of eight boats on day one to winning our class in both races on day two.
The Assist Insurance team comprised Steve (Director) Liam from Compliance, Luke & Aaron from Sales and our guests: Tony (KGM Underwriting Services), Ian (Tingdene Marinas), Oliver & Danielle (Canopius).
The event was a great success and brilliant fun, bringing our dedicated team closer together in an exciting challenge. We wanted to reward some of the staff, suppliers and strategic partners who have really helped us build Assist Insurance into one of the fastest growing providers of boat insurance in the UK, and to meet some of our competitors in a more social environment. It was also designed to give some of our staff a better understanding of competitive sailing and boat management so that they have a better understanding of boat ownership and relate to our many boat-owning customers.
The boat we chartered was Rocket Dog II, a Beneteau First 40 yacht – perfect for a crew including novice sailors with its balanced keel and rig, but still responsive, fast and exciting to sail. Many thanks to the team at Britannia Events who organised the regatta and helped to raise money for a worthwhile cause.
