Polygon Group Pursuit 2016

This years pursuit race to Alderney was the first to officially include catamarans so there was much excitement as the handicaps are applied at the start with the slowest boats starting before the fastest. In this case the fastest was the Nacra F20 Carbon ‘Polygon’ which started some two and a half hours after the first boat! With very light winds forecast and a favourable tide for the early starters this was always going to be a struggle and after being totally becalmed for the first half an hour giving the first boats off an even bigger start. However, under full spinnaker ‘Polygon’ started to get into some breeze, picked up speed to about 16kts and fizzed past the majority of the fleet on the way up to Alderney. Unfortunately the chase was just to big on this occasion with ‘Polygon’ finishing in 3rd place overall.

Polygon’s 40th anniversary party goes with a bang

Fire dancers, balancing acts and jugglers formed just part of the entertainment at Polygon’s 40th anniversary party which took place earlier this month at Castle Cornet. The castle was transformed from medieval fortress to modern-day gala venue with the various performers located around the grounds for the one hundred or so guests to enjoy with their pre-dinner drinks and canapés. This was followed by dinner in a marquee on Top Lawn. The evening culminated in a spectacular firework display over St Peter Port and a finale combined performance by all the evening’s entertainers on the Lower Battlements. The event was a double celebration as it also marked the ruby wedding anniversary of Polygon’s Chairman Martin Belcher and his wife Cathy. Martin commented: ‘We were delighted to welcome so many of our friends, clients and colleagues who have supported us over the past four decades as Polygon has evolved from an aviation insurance company and underwriter to the independent property and business investment company that it is today. It was the perfect way to mark such an important milestone for the organisation.’
