With less than 24 hours to go before Katie Schuhster – representing the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust – fires the cannon as official race starter for the 87th edition of the Round the Island Race, the festive atmosphere in Cowes is in full swing.

Plastic continues to pollute our oceans and there are no signs of it slowing down. Around the world, we are producing more than 300 million tonnes of plastic each year due to its cheapness and versatility when it comes to packaging – creating an environmental problem that needs to be tackled. In 2015, 322 million tonnes of plastic were produced which would equal the same weight as 900 Empire State Buildings!

Another thing we are committed to at Boatshed is reducing the costs of boat ownership for our customers. Boat buyers will, typically, spend about 20% of the price of a boat on necessary equipment, products and services within the first 12 months of ownership. This expenditure can be considerable and is often overlooked by other brokers. Our Preferred Partners Program is aimed at reducing this expenditure and thereby the overall cost of boat ownership for Boatshed customers.
