2021 Round Up

Looking back at last year

On Tuesday 13 July 21, we welcomed guests from a range of companies across the UK to take part in The Reginald Fessenden Challenge to raise funds for The NOT FORGOTTEN, a fantastic charity which provides entertainment, leisure and recreation for the serving wounded, injured or sick and for ex-service men and women with disabilities. 

Money was also raised for the Submariners Memorial Appeal. In all £7.5k was donated to the two extremely worthy causes the event supports.
17 teams from some of the world’s leading military contractors supported the event, including:  BMT; Clarion Events; Leonardo; Lockheed Martin; Northrop Grumman; QINETIQ; Raytheon (UK); SAAB Seaeye Ltd; Safran; Scientific Management International; Servowatch Systems Ltd; SEA; Stirling Dynamics/Expleo; THALES; &, ULTRA Maritime.

The teams arrived in Port Hamble on Tuesday afternoon for a wonderful evening of networking in the Royal Southern Yacht Club, which included a drinks reception with drinks provided by our lifestyle partners Mount Gay Rum & Salcombe Gin.

A delicious dinner sponsored by Expleo/Stirling Dynamics followed.

The Dinner which was followed by an auction of promises.
Auction of promises.
Notably, the bottle of Single Malt Whisky originally donated by 40 Cdo. RM in 2017 re-donated of THALES UK in 2018; re-donated by Christopher in 2019 and kindly re-donated by THALES in both 2020 and 2021 was again won by THALES.
A delicious breakfast, sponsored by Raytheon (UK), of a bacon bap, freshly squeezed orange juice was taken on Wednesday before the yachts headed out on the water for a morning of training, and the all important races themselves.

After a cracking day the teams headed back to Port Hamble Marina where new comers to the event ,Servowatch Systems Ltd lifted the Reginald Fessenden Challenge 2021 Trophy!
