Rose blossoms for regatta launch
Article date: 24 Sep 2013

The Sir Alec Rose, in Port Solent, was the venue for the start of a three-day sailing regatta.

The MJ Quinn UK Firefighters Sailing Challenge (UKFSC) sees participants from all of the emergency services, across the UK, compete in the annual competition.

The 2013 event got off to a great start with a get-together at The Sir Alec Rose, where entrants were welcomed by the UKFSC committee.

Mick Stead and his crew of Hampshire 1 came out on top, beating 18 other yachts to win the trophy. Nick Harding, on the London 2 yacht, won the pursuit race.

The MJ Quinn UKFSC 2013 donated £6,000 to its chosen charities: The Fire Fighters Charity, RNLI, Save the Children and Mission for Sam.

Tony Duncan, pub manager at The Sir Alec Rose, said: “We were delighted to host the welcoming event for this year’s regatta. It is a fantastic competition and a great fundraiser for some worthwhile causes.”
