Supporting alternative regatta to Cowes Week

Icom are pleased to be continuing their support of Ramsgate Week
which will be held between 30th July – 4th August 2012 this year. Icom
are once again proud to be named as the ‘Official Radio Communications
Suppliers’ to the regatta which has been a feature of the town’s
calendar for over 110 years. Ramsgate Week 2012 is widely recognised as
the friendly regatta and the alternative to Cowes and attracts
approximately 100 boats from Great Britain and the continent.

Icom UK will be supplying the regatta with Icom marine handheld VHF
radios, which will be used by the safety fleet and on shore organisers
in the management of Ramsgate Week. The radios will be the primary means
of communication for the race management team, race control and safety
fleet. The Icom handhelds will be used by officials to oversee events
both on and off the water, and will also be used to respond quickly and
efficiently to any emergencies that may arise.

Organised by the Royal Temple Yacht Club, Ramsgate Week is the third
largest international regatta in the UK, featuring about 100 boats from
Great Britain and overseas. For more details
