Roaring Events has announced the launch of the first-ever sustainable superyacht industry golf day event, the Roaring Golf Classic. Scheduled for the 13th October 2023, the event will take place at the prestigious T-Golf Puntiro course, set amidst the stunning beauty of Palma de Mallorca.
The brainchild of founder Dan Wise, a seasoned superyacht captain with two decades of experience, a passionate sailor, and an avid golfer, the Roaring Golf Classic builds upon the successes of the 2021 and 2022 golfing events that Wise and his team organised to support Team Roaring40s' efforts in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. This year, Roaring Golf is back with a mission to host an extraordinary event day of industry networking and proper golfing, with sustainability resolutely at its core.
Dan Wise shares his vision for the event: "At this year's Roaring Golf, we are collaborating with truly innovative brand partners and suppliers, demonstrating that we can continue to enjoy what we love while making conscious choices for the environment. Our event aims to inspire positive change within the superyacht industry while ensuring our players and guests have a fantastic time."
Fueled by a love for golf and an unwavering commitment to preserving our oceans for future generations, Dan Wise and the Roaring team have garnered the support of golfing and sustainability pioneers, OCEANTEE.
Ed Sandison, CEO & founder at OCEANTEE, adds: "Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, so we're delighted to be partnering with a like-minded business in Roaring Events, to help them make the inaugural Roaring Golf Classic a truly sustainable event."
Under the banner of Roaring Events' 'Ocean to Green' initiative, the Roaring Golf Classic will feature OCEANTEE's eco-friendly bamboo tees, high-performance apparel made from TencelTM and Merino blends, and caps and pin flags made from certified upcycled marine waste, along with sustainably produced champagne. Recycling, waste management and water conservation are top priorities for the event production team.
The Roaring Golf Classic has received stronger-than-ever industry support thanks to notable sponsors such as Gym Marine, Starboard Card, Doyle Sails, Titan Marine Air, BM Composites, Modesty Group, and BWA Yachting, among others. Antonella Della Pietra, Managing Partner at BWA Yachting, expressed her enthusiasm saying: "Here at BWA Yachting, we love supporting worthwhile causes and ambitious projects. We've been collaborating with Roaring Golf since their inception in 2021, and we look forward to getting involved again this year."
The Roaring Golf Classic is delighted to hold a charity raffle in aid of the Mallorca Preservation Foundation. 100 per cent of the raffle ticket sales will be directly donated to the Foundation, supporting their Marine Conservation projects dedicated to safeguarding the biodiversity of the Balearic Sea.
