The EMC Silicon Cup is a sailing regatta specifically for the IT industry and is open to both novices and experienced sailors from different IT businesses and also Channel Partners specialising in leading technology solutions and services, to include:
- IT Recruitment
- Business Intelligence
- Customer Relationship Management
- Enterprise Resource Management

Corecom is excited to be part of the event this year and see it as a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded IT professionals, as well as building stronger teamwork within internal management. Corecom is hoping to build on Catalyst’s success from last year where they gained a respectable 3rd place within their fleet. Images from the 2014 event show the fast pace and team spirit required to succeed amongst strong competition.
Commenting on Corecom’s attendance at the event, Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director at Corecom said:
“All of the crew involved in the EMC Silicon Cup from Corecom are looking forward to participating. It will be great to connect with current clients, colleagues and IT professionals, strengthening relationships and building new affiliations. What better setting to do this in than a sailing regatta?”
As the largest IT industry sailing regatta, the event has seen rapid growth since it began in 2000 and participants don’t need to have had previous sailing experience to take part. The 2015 sailing activities are set to run alongside an action packed programme of social events and fundraising challenges in support of worthy causes.
Commenting on Catalyst’s involvement, Mark Godliman, Managing Director at Catalyst said:
“The event provides us with the opportunity to create new relationships and reinforce existing ones with clients, partners, colleagues and like-minded professionals. We are very excited about taking part again this year and hope to bring home another trophy.”
Mark Fowle, co-founder of the event said:
“The EMC Silicon Cup is a fabulous place to meet people who are in the industry. An incredible way to team build.”
