Polygon Sponsors The Guernsey Bach Choir

Polygon is delighted to announce that they will be sponsoring The Guernsey Bach Choir for the next five years.

The Choir was formed in February 2007 by conductor Alan Gough, and it has given many concerts in various venues across the Island in that time. Although named The Guernsey Bach Choir, this vocal ensemble does not limit itself to the music of one composer alone, but now has a rapidly growing repertoire of anthems, part-songs, madrigals and popular music both sacred and secular.

Alan Gough commented:
“It’s fantastic to be able to secure the next five years – these funds keep our choir of 30 members performing across the Island throughout the year as well as giving us the opportunity to bring over top professional soloists from the UK to support us which provides our audiences with truly memorable and thrilling performances.”

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.
