TeamO partners with the RWYC Lonely Rock Race 2020 - Safety Partner

TeamO has been announced as the safety partner for the inaugural Lonely Rock Race which will be run in August 2020 by the Royal Western Yacht Club.

Press Announcement!

The RWYC Lonely Rock Race is pleased to announce our chosen charity as the RNLI. This comes together with the announcement of TeamO Marine who have been appointed as our Safety Partner.

Lauren Mead, Sales and Marketing Director said "Now more than ever we all need something to look forward to, and The Lonely Rock Race stands for so much that we believe in at TeamO: tenacity, a drive to compete and a love of offshore racing. We are delighted to be supporting the inaugural event as Safety Partner and to provide the fleet with the best British-made lifesaving equipment. The Fastnet Rock is an iconic mark in the British racing scene, and we are looking forward to meeting the racers at the start and finish lines where we will be donating prizes and supporting as much as we can."

Chris Arscott – Commodore of the Royal Western Yacht Club said ‘again we have great news for all the competitors of the Lonely Rock Race, more prizes from more great companies. We really want to support the industry in any way we can, this is a small way to give each business some marketing publicity during these difficult times. This also brings the total prize fund to well over £35000! We are also really pleased to be supporting the RNLI. Whilst all our competitors are very experienced and sufficiently qualified to race, we never know what may be around the corner. The RNLI do a terrific job in watching over us and it’s great that we can recognise their services in this way. We hope as many people and businesses alike can dig deep and donate something by using the link below’
