Bango set sail at Cowes 2009

Bango hosted an action packed week of sailing at the annual Cowes regatta on the Isle of Wight.

A full complement crew plus Bango customers and staff had intense racing in varying conditions.  Tuesday saw the fiercest winds, with the team having to work hard to keep the boat upright and on course. The Bango teams were placed 18th overall, so for novice sailors – that’s no mean feat!

“This was no ordinary customer event and it was fantastic to be involved and not just be a spectator, I really felt I had earned my place on the boat. “ said Elaine Davies SVP Customer Services. “The Isle of Wight is surprisingly easy to get to, with parking at the ferry terminal and regular trains from London, all that ‘s left is a quick half an hour ferry crossing and you are at the boat, making it an exciting and accessible event for our customers.”.
