2010 Skandia Sail for Gold    

Weymouth & Portland
Mon, 9 Aug 2010 to Sat, 14 Aug 2010

The 2010 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, the fifth running of the regatta which is held at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy in Dorset, Great Britain, is the seventh and final event of the 2009-10 edition of the ISAF Sailing World Cup.

In 2009 the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta welcomed a record entry of over 600 sailors and the event is expected to go from strength to strength in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic Games.

Whilst Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta is a relatively new event, many people will remember the hugely successful and popular Weymouth Olympic Week which ran from 1972 until 1988. Based from Weymouth Beach there was sailing for all the Olympic sailing events. The present Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, however, is being run on a totally different scale from WPNSA.

Skandia have become a renowned supporter of sailing events in Great Britain. As well as being title sponsor for the Sail for Gold Regatta since its inception in 2006, they also sponsored Cowes Week for 14 years.

UK Sport is the other major contributor to the Regatta with money coming from UK National Lottery funding.
