For the eighth year running, Easynet is sponsoring the Outward Bound Trust Diamond Cup Regatta. The 2008 regatta is the biggest ever and is a truly international competition for Easynet, with 19 boats and over 100 Easynet customers and partners participating from across the world. This year the race takes place from 29 June – 01 July in Port Solent in the UK.
David Rowe, Easynet’s chief executive officer, will host this year’s regatta. He said, “We have a long history supporting the Outward Bound Trust, an incredibly valuable organisation. The Diamond Cup Regatta is always a fantastic event, and this year’s looks set to be the best ever. For Easynet, providing an outstanding customer and partner experience is central to our business, and this Regatta provides exactly that.”
Nick Barrett, CEO, Outward Bound said: “The Outward Bound Trust is immensely proud to be associated with Easynet once again, for this year’s Diamond Cup Regatta in the UK. Easynet’s enthusiasm, commitment and dedication has enabled the event to grow significantly. Funds raised from this year’s Regatta will be invested back into assisting more financially disadvantaged young people to attend courses run by The Outward Bound Trust.”
