Darnells latest to sponsor Tall Ships Challenge 2014
The leading firm of Chartered Accountants, Tax Specialists and Business Advisers, is the latest business to lend its support to the Tall Ships Challenge. By backing this initiative Darnells is part of team of local sponsors that are enabling a group of young people from Devon to race the historic Brixham sailing trawler ‘Leader’ from Harlingen in the Netherlands to Fredrikstad in Norway in July.
Phil Raisey, Managing Partner at Darnells, explained why they were supporting the initiative:
“Having assisted Gordon Oliver and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in securing Torbay as the European stop-over for ‘Around Alone’ in 2002, we had no hesitation in offering to help with ‘Tall Ships 2014’.
We are proud to be helping the crew of ‘Leader’, one of the oldest vessels in this race and wish everyone involved a successful, happy and safe time.”
Trinity have now completed interviewing candidates for the team to race Leader and the young people, their families and sponsors will be attending the official launch in Brixham today.
