QLD Beneteau Cup: Dulon Polish adds shine to Ensign Yachts regatta

'Queensland Beneteau Cup'    Jane Virtue
Adding glamour to the Ensign Yachts Beneteau Cup and French Yacht Challenge regatta this month will be the European hull polish product, Dulon Polish.

All entrants to the regatta, being held out of Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron on the 30 and 31 October, will have an equal chance to win for their yacht, a stunning make-over using the long lasting polish system widely used overseas on Super Yachts.

The regatta organisers expect this prize will bring another dimension to the event. 'This is a really valuable sponsor prize. Since this prize can be won by anyone participating in the French Yacht Challenge and Beneteau Cup we are hoping that it will swing some undecided owners to take the plunge and participate,' Stuart Markwell said.

Phil Gray from Dulon Polish Australia, the importers and distributors of Dulon, will be supplying the product while SeaSpray will provide the application service. SeaSpray, based on the Gold Coast, has been in the boat business for many years. Alexis Bisbas, Shane Knight and their team offer top quality service detailing, regular washes and maintenance packages.

'Dulon polish systems rejuvenate oxidised gelcoat and paint. Once the unique water based polish is applied, it leaves a membrane on the surface that protects and shines for many months, usually three to four times longer than normal waxes. The polish gives your boat a new look and makes it easier to wash and keep clean,' Bisbas said.

Both Gray and Bisbas will be on tools with the SeaSpray team to completely detail the lucky winner’s yacht on the exterior. The work will include the hull, cabin and cockpit area, teak treatment, all of the stainless steel. 'The vessel will be gleaming like new,' Gray said.

One entrant already benefitting from a Dulon finish is Mooloolaba’s Beneteau 34.7 Brilliant Pearl. Owner Gary McCarthy said 'the polish reduces my boat maintenance problems, but adds to its competitiveness.

'I was looking for a product that was easy to maintain and gave the Pearl’s hull a sheen finish. Dulon certainly delivered.'

The Beneteau Cup and French Yacht Challenge Sailing Instructions for the regatta are now available for download from the RQYS website.

Entries close on 15 October 2010 and can be lodged by contacting the event organiser, Jane Virtue on jane.virtue@bigpond.com
