Ipswich: IT regatta victory of Two10Degrees

A TEAM from Suffolk-based Two10Degrees emerged victorious from an IT industry sailing regatta at Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Now in its 13th year, the popular event saw some of the biggest names in the industry gather together for two days of competitive racing and networking.

The 40-foot yacht Anticipation with the Two10 Degrees team on board featured in the largest racing fleet of the Silicon Cup, with 12 entries.

But the keenly contested racing saw Two10 Degrees, based at the Broomvale Business Centre in Bramford Road, Little Blakenham, near Ipswich, come away winners of the IRC2 fleet, after a closely fought battle with a team from HP.

The Two10 Degrees team featured a mix of experienced sailors and novices, some of who had to overcome both nerves and seasickness.
