The Silicon Cup is the largest annual sailing event for the IT & Telecoms industries. Established in 2000, is a charity event with all profits being donated to the three charities: NSPCC, Jubilee Sailing Trust and Dreams Come True. More than £250,000 is raised for these charities. The regatta regularly attracts 50-60 teams and 500+ participants from the IT sector for two days of highly competitive, yet accessible, sailing on the Solent. Participants also enjoy a series of networking events in Cowes, the capital of sailing in the UK.

The Silicon Cup not only benefits from the new title sponsorship of Equinix in 2009, but also from the appointment of Computing magazine as the media sponsor of the regatta, raising the regatta’s profile considerably.
