In a press release received today from the GPA title sponsor, ‘Stanley Gibbons Investment is delighted to sponsor the Guernsey Powerboat Series for the third year’.
The Stanley Gibbons Investment Powerboat Series is a series of six monthly powerboat races, taking place in Guernsey from May to October.
Keith Heddle, Managing Director of Investments at Stanley Gibbons, said;
Powerboating is an increasingly popular sport and Guernsey is the perfect setting for competitors, and spectators alike. This sponsorship is part of Stanley Gibbons Investment’s commitment to the Island, and we hope Islanders will enjoy the events.
The series is a great opportunity for Islanders and visitors to see Guernsey’s spectacular coastline, and the World and European Powerboat Championships later this year are a great coup for the Island.
Powerboating is growing in popularity in the Channel Islands and the Guernsey Powerboat Association now has over 80 members.
Deb Sauvarin of the Guernsey Powerboat Association, said;
The Guernsey Powerboat Association is absolutely delighted to be generously supported by Stanley Gibbons Investment for the third year running and we would like to sincerely thank Stanley Gibbons for their continued support.
2017 is an extremely exciting, busy year for the Guernsey Powerboat Association as we have been asked to host a prestigious World Class Event 4th – 10th September. Preparations have already started and we are thrilled that Stanley Gibbons is going to be part of this event.
The first Stanley Gibbons Investment Powerboat Race Series 2017 event will take place 27-28 May at Havelet and Lowerheads.
