The race to the Equator, also known as the Neptune Regatta, happened from 11 to 18 February and was the lucky 8th edition. Simpson Marine was proud to once again support this exciting event which proves always to be an adventure for all classes of sailing and power boats and also the return of the Simpson Marine Poker Run! Phill, Julien and Tony from our office headed up with the Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 and met the convoy at registration night just before the race. The regatta is essentially a combination of great sailing, beautiful tropical islands, great food and lots of fun cruising in convoy. The participants sailed from Batam’s Nongsa Point Marina to the Equator to give newcomers the experience the ‘’Crossing the line’’ with stopovers at Fish Head Island on the journey south and a new destination, Benan, on the trip north. The popularity of the Neptune Regatta continues to grow and we are already looking forward to the next edition.
