The EMC Silicon Cup is the sailing regatta bespoke for the IT industry, welcoming hundreds of IT professionals for the thrill of yacht racing combined with networking and team building. The event is a great way to get in front of potential new clients or partners, entertain key business contacts and strengthen working relations.

Guests will enjoy the excitement of yacht racing over two-days, starting from Cowes on the Isle of Wight and continuing along the Solent strait. 

No previous sailing experience is needed, as a professional Skipper and First Mate will teach you the ropes and guide your branded boat to victory.
