Specsavers Torquay has become the main sponsor of the Torbay Royal Regatta.

Celebrating the new sponsorship

The store, located on Union Street, hosted a visit from sailors competing in the maritime event – which sees thousands of visitors each year – to celebrate the new sponsorship. The Royal Regatta takes place in The English Riviera and is one of the largest Regattas in the country, with races in a range of water sports from yachting to water skiing.

Fantastic sporting events

Specsavers Torquay store director, Simon Simmonds says: ‘It’s wonderful that we can support one of Torbay’s most prestigious events.

‘Our own Specsavers Torquay trophy is being presented on Wednesday 26 August to winners of the yacht race, so we’re looking forward to seeing who has their eyes on the prize! The Regatta gives people the opportunity to enjoy an array of fantastic sporting events, with some of the regions’ most talent sportsmen and women. It’s going to be an event to remember!’

The Regatta will also host a Fair Play Day on Thursday 27 August for children with disabilities, where they will be able to enjoy classic fairground rides free of charge.
