At the 5th and penultimate event of racing in Guernsey this season, the Guernsey Powerboat Association (GPA) announced that their series title sponsor, Stanley Gibbons Investment have signed up for another year.
GPA spokesperson Deborah Sauvarin commented on the news;
We are delighted to advise that Stanley Gibbons Investment have announced today that they will be continuing their sponsorship for our Club Racing for the 2017 Race Season.
Deborah told me this evening that the deal only extends to the 2017 Guernsey Club Racing Series and sponsorship is still being actively sought for the UIM 3A, 3B and V24 World Championships due to be held on the Island next year.
We can’t believe the interest already from local and overseas competitors for our 2017 World Championships.
We have lots to look forward to in 2017, the future is looking very good!
