The EMC Silicon Cup is the largest sailing regatta for the IT industry. Join hundreds of industry professionals for the thrill of yacht racing in the Solent, network with contacts at action-packed social events and support worthy causes through entertaining fundraising challenges.
Since the first event in 2000 it has grown to include more than 450 competitors and continues to attract more companies that join those that have taken part regularly over
the years. The 2014 event will take place on the 11–12 September in Cowes on the
Isle of Wight (England).
Don’t miss a unique event that provides a great opportunity to entertain your customers, reward your employees, meet new contacts and give something back. No previous sailing experience is required - enter your own boat or let the Britannia team set you up with a suitable yacht and a professional crew who will teach you the ropes.
Sailing for a Better Future
Now in its fifteenth year the Silicon Cup came to life when four senior people in the IT industry decided to combine their passion and their profession to raise meaningful amounts of money for charity - since the first event it has raised over £500,000 for its nominated charities. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the generous donors, participants and sponsors that have made this possible.
“It was a magic two days at the end of which I am "exhausted but exhilarated". It was awesome to see at first hand the skill involved in handling those magnificent craft, and to feel so safe in the hands of the experts. Everyone on the team was fascinating in their own right and I've made some great new friends whom I look forward to meeting again”. Chris – Microsoft
