Greenskin Wine continues to delight wines lovers all over Australia with its recent sponsorship of Geographe Bay Race Week held on the pristine waters of Geographe Bay in Busselton, Western Australia.
Geographe Bay Race Week is Western Australia’s premier yachting regatta and is a much-anticipated event among the yachting fraternity Australia-wide.
Despite Covid-19 restrictions, more than 70 boats set sail on the 4th February 2022 with the event offering a six-day racing schedule suitable for all levels of sailing ability.
Attracting competitors from around the nation, the event enjoyed some of the best sailing conditions in the world with competitors, spectators, family and friends coming together to enjoy the festival atmosphere of the event’s on-water and off-water schedule.
During the lay days, many people explored the picturesque Geographe Bay and the surrounding Margaret River region. The stunning coastlines and scenery, fine food and wine, and generous local hospitality was lapped up by all.
Throughout the week sailors enjoyed Greenskin Wine with founders, Mike Davies and Kim McKee competing in the regatta onboard their 36-foot monohull, ‘Sandstone”.
Greenskin Wine founder Mike Davies said the company loved being involved in the popular event.
“The week was awesome for sailing with a real mix of conditions for boats of all sizes. It was wonderful to introduce more sailors to the many benefits of Greenskin Wine including its delicious taste along with the practical, unbreakable, and eco-friendly packaging which is ideal for yachties”, Mike said.
“It really is a no-brainer to not have glass onboard, particularly while racing, and we have already got lots of orders flowing in from fellow sailors which is great”, he said.
The Geographe Bay Race week is the ultimate event for those seeking a fun-filled sailing regatta in pristine waters supported by an outstanding regatta organising committee.
Run by the Geographe Bay Yacht Club and an enthusiastic group of local volunteers, the Regatta delivers an incomparable experience with its on-water racing and so much to see and do in the region off the water.
Race Organiser, Nigel Chesterfield Evans said that Greenskin Wines’ support is a great boost for the event.
“We know yachties love and drink, and we were delighted to have Greenskin Wine join us in this year’s Race Week”, Nigel said.
“Greenskin Wine supports local Western Australian wineries, that combined with the practical packaging for boats. their support is a real bonus for us and all the participants,” he said.
With an event bigger and better planned for next year, Greenskin Wine looks forward to supporting the event again in 2023.
