Pinmar raises new record

Jan 5, 2013 by Guest Writer

Palma-based yacht painter Pinmar hosted the 24th Pinmar Golf Tournament in October and raised a record of 72,000 euros for its nominated charities, despite one of the most torrential downpours in Mallorca in recent memory and the resulting cancellation of part of the tournament for the first time in its history.
Once again hosted at the Son Gual Golf Course in Mallorca and co-sponsored by Awlgrip, The Pinmar brought together more than 100 companies, 90 volunteers and 364 golfers for the annual tournament, which culminated with the prize-giving dinner and Come Fly With Me Show followed by a new After Party.
This year’s winner, in the Best Yacht category, was S/Y Pro-rigging.
The money raised will go to several charities, including YachtAid Global, Allan Graham 4 Kidz in Mallorca, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Action Aid.
This year’s tournament has been confirmed for Oct. 9-12. For more information, e-mail nick@pinmar.com.
