We are Sailing

Posted: 06 May 2011

This afternoon a team of 8 people will set off from Faversham to Port Solent to take part in a sailing event known as "The Interbrewery Regatta". This year 19 identical yachts will spend the weekend racing against each other in a series of competions hoping to be crowned Interbrewery Sailing Champions 2011. Last years winners "The Brilliant Beer Company" are this years hosts and will no doubt be looking to hang on to their title.

This annual event is a highlight of the year and starts this evening with a party at Sunsail's H.Q. to which the participating brewers all take a firkin of beer. I will be taking down a cask of Spitfire which will help to get the party started. Competition is not just restricted to the water and we always like to make sure that all of our beer gets finished, of course the other brewers feel the same way so a great deal of fun is had by one and all.

Lets hope for fine weather and a gentle breeze!
