Record Entries for Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta

March 5th, 2008


Following the announcement of the winner of Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta on Monday night and the presentation of Audi’s all new A4 1.8 TFSI multitronic sedan, major sponsor, Audi, conducted an extra lottery for all regatta participants.

Entries to the 2008 regatta reached a record number and as promised by Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Joerg Hofmann, a lottery of all boats was conducted and the winner was given the keys to a brand new Audi A3.

“We are breaking records with our vehicles sales, and we want to emulate this with our sailing activity,” Hofmann said.

“The A3 lottery was an extra incentive for yachts to compete for fun, even if they weren’t likely to win their division at the Regatta. Effectively every boat could be in the running for a new car.”

The winning recipient of the Audi A3 was Brian Lees from Clontarf. Brian sailed in the Regatta on the weekend with his boat Contentious in the Adams 10 Division.
