The Race organisers at the Island Sailing Club together with J.P. Morgan Asset Management & their Race Communications teams headed up by Peta Stuart-Hunt for the Race, J.P. Morgan’s agency Into the Blue and Next Generation Results (NGR), are honoured to have been nominated for a Maritime Foundation Award this year.
