Pursuit director Peter Newell said: ‘This is the fourth year we have run this event and it gets better each and every year.

‘It provides an opportunity to sail in company with other yachts around the famous Nab Tower whilst raising money for charity.

‘The prize giving and party in the evening rounds off the day in a fabulous location among fellow sailors.

‘It’s a date not to be missed.’
