Steve Porter ready to set sail at Cowes Week 2013

Steve Porter Transport Group is sponsoring a 32ft Hanse sailing yacht, ‘Monkey Business’, at this years’ Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.

Despite a strong sporting presence on the Isle of Wight, as sponsors of IW Raiders Ice Hockey, AFC Bournemouth-IW Football Club, and Shanklin Cricket Club, this will be the first time that Steve Porter Transport has sponsored a team in the iconic sailing event.

Steve Porter Transport Managing Director, Malcolm Gibson, said: “As an Island based business for over 30 years, we are committed to supporting local events and sporting clubs. Cowes Week is obviously one of the biggest events in the sailing calendar and we are delighted to be sponsoring yacht Monkey Business this year.”

Monkey Business Skipper and Director of Southampton PR firm Defero Communications, Grant Woodall, said: “Cowes is always a fantastic week and this year we have invited a number of clients to join us out on the water for what is a very special racing experience.

“But there’s no such thing as a free ride, and we are asking everyone that comes aboard to support our fundraising efforts by making a small donation towards our chosen charity, Naomi House. With our various fundraising efforts we are well on track to reach our goal of £50,000 this year.”
