We’re on: to help our charities through Covid19

Arrangements for 2020 and 2021

Since 2000, the Silicon Cup Regatta has raised over £1 million for some excellent causes. This year, the committee voted to support three charities that enrich the lives of deprived or seriously ill children by providing opportunities for young people or encouraging them to take up sailing – Dreams Come True, the Andrew Simpson Foundation, and the Greig City Academy sailing programme.

This year, we will be hosting a silent online auction from 5th to 11th October 2020 and will move the physical event to 27th and 28th May 2021. Please save the date!

Our objective is to do what we can to raise money this year and host the annual event as early as is practical in 2021. We want to get people back together and continue the fundraising as soon as we can.

The Silicon Cup is an important event in the IT Industry’s annual calendar as it brings together hundreds of connected people in competition and to socialise, all whilst raising money for some important charities. In a year so disrupted by COVID-19, the people that the charities support are in more need than ever, especially as there have been significantly less ways for charities to generate income.

We thank you for continuing to support the event and the charities we help.  If you have any questions, please do get in touch.

Best wishes,

Moore Barlow Silicon Cup 2020 Committee
