Lee Peck Media makes waves…literally

Lee Peck Media is swapping the office for the open water as it takes part in TheYachtMarket.com Regatta next week.

The agency, which is overseeing PR for the event, will have its own branded yacht in the event and compete in The Property Cup. Managing director Alyson and account director Laura will head up the crew, alongside a professional skipper, as they race against nine other teams.

The Property Cup is one of four events taking place during TheYachtMarket.com Regatta, which runs from September 17 to 19. Others include The City Cup, The Women’s Cup and The Community Cup.

Alyson said: “Lee Peck Media is known for its specialism in property PR so it’s very fitting for us to compete in The Property Cup. We’re looking forward to getting out on the water and taking part in this exciting new event.”

Laura added: “It’s great to see a regatta running alongside TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show. Both events will shine a light on the marine industry and the opportunities that sailing can bring.”

The regatta has been set up as part of TheYachtMarket.com’s bid to get more people out on the water and trying sailing.

Richard W. Roberts, CEO of TheYachtMarket.com, said: “Getting people out onto the water really is a mission close to our hearts at TheYachtMarket.com. We’re thrilled that companies from across the south are signing up to take part and we hope they inspire others to give the sport of sailing a try too.”

Other partners of the inaugural event include Sunsail, which will provide a fleet of Sunsail Match First 40s, complete with skippers, Rees Leisure and British Marine.
