Haven Knox-Johnston Kip Regatta 2024


Comments from Paul Knox-Johnston Sales & Markerting Manager

“The Haven Knox-Johnston crew are delighted to be the title sponsor of the 2024 Kip Regatta in May.   Supporting the yachting community and helping bring sailors together to do what they love best is firmly in our DNA.  The West coast of Scotland is a truly breath-taking place to sail and will provide a spectacular backdrop for a weekend of competitive on water action and by the sounds of it, some not to be missed social events!


The team at Kip Marina clearly have a great track record of organising a fantastic event and with upwards of 50 boats expected on the water, the 2024 regatta looks to be no different.  We look forward to being involved across the weekend and working with the Kip Marina team to make the regatta one to be remembered.


As part of your preparations for the rapidly approaching sailing season be sure to visit HavenKJ.com or call 01732 223 650 for a competitive boat insurance quote to cover both your 2024 cruising and racing plans.  Wishing all racers good luck in your quests for line honours”
