PIF Annual Charity Yachting Regatta
Published on 25/03/2015 Group GSA
On March 13, GroupGSA joined industry friends at the annual Property Industry Foundation Charity Yachting Regatta. Each year the Regatta attracts on average 100 boats with over 2,000 property and construction industry representatives. The purpose of the regatta is to raise much needed funds to support young homeless Australian’s. The PIF Regatta has raised over $20 million since 1996 and in 2015 we are pleased to have contributed to the $500,000 in funds raised on the day.
GroupGSA has participated in the Regatta since its inauguration, and despite a rainy start and consistent overcast skies, our boat ‘Bennie & The Jets’ made its way through the harbour with an enthusiastic crew of staff and guests.
With all hands on deck we made the finish line under sail, despite little or no wind, such was the dedication and determination of the team to avoid motoring back to a long awaited beverage on the beach. A special thanks to our First Mate Max Thomson who with steel focus at the wheel brought us home in 6th place for our division.
Thank you to our guests for joining us on this enjoyable day which resulted in a substantial contribution to our community.
