For the first time in the history of the Gravesend Regatta Committee, 2006 saw sponsorship of our skiffs. In return for sponsorship, the committee advertises the company name on the side of each skiff and our motor boat. The company logo is also included on our posters and headed paper. Every time the regattas are reported in the local papers, the accompanying photographs serve as a further advertisement.
Sponsorship monies go towards the upkeep of all the Committee boats plus the cost of the Regatta, races and trophies. The committee is extremely grateful to all our sponsors and other companies who help us with funding or by just being associated with us. We wouldn’t be able to keep the tradition of skiff rowing alive in Gravesend without them.
We are always looking for new ideas and ways in which companies can become involved with us at Regattas and races, both on the river and shoreside. There are also other ways in which help is needed; as during the winter months, in addition to planning the next year’s Regatta, we are busy with maintaining the boats, boatyard and workshop. So if you have any ideas or opportunities, which you or your Company would like to discuss, please contact our Chairman, Ian Stevenson on 01474 535022.
We are pleased to be associated with the Companies below, who are our currently sponsoring Gravesend Regattas – thank you.
