Dutton Gregory - Sail to Success

  • Posted

On Friday 26th May Dutton Gregory took to the water for the first ever SPA South Coast Property Cup, which saw an exciting sailing competition amongst property professionals on Southampton Waters.

The event was born from a collaboration between Royal Southampton Yacht Club, RYA, MDL Marinas, Sunsail and Rees Leisure.  Teams took to the water in the glorious sunshine, setting sail at 8.30am and finishing at 2pm.  Competition was tough but Dutton Gregory, whose team included several regular sailors, fought their way through to win the coveted cup!

Denise Bull, a Partner at Dutton Gregory and part of the winning team stated “Our skipper asked us if we wanted to have a relaxed day out or whether we wanted to win." We want to win" was the resounding response! We might have got a bit carried away when we tried to protest another boat for rounding the wrong mark and then discovered we had it wrong (we went round the other mark as well to be safe!). However it was all worth it to lift the trophy for the first ever Southampton Sailing Week Property Cup!“

So the bar has been set……. let’s see if Dutton Gregory can keep hold of the cup next year!
