SPORTSWEAR manufacturer adidas has again agreed to be title sponsor for Parkstone Yacht Club’s Poole Week regatta.

The event is one of the biggest dinghy regattas on the south coast with more than 100 boats already entered.

Six days of competitive racing will take place between Sunday, August 27 and Friday, September 1.

Classes include Wayfarers, Lasers, Flying Fifteens, Cornish Shrimpers, X One Designs, Poole Dolphins, RS200 and 2.4mR, plus a handicap fleet.

As part of their sponsorship, adidas will give away up to £200 worth of sailing clothing in a daily prize draw. Winners will be drawn at random from the entry list after racing each day

Geof Gibbons, chair of the organising committee, said: "We are delighted to have adidas on board once more as our title sponsors.

"Their support and generous prizes add an extra dimension to what is already a very popular event.

"We are expecting some great racing and it is fantastic to be able to reward entrants with such high quality prizes."
