A team from Permanent Bank International took part in the Viking Longboat Races in Peel. Billed by the organisers as the ‘World Championships’ the event attracted more than 700 rowers with thousands of pounds being raised in the process for local charities.
David Fulton, Business Development Manager at Permanent Bank International, said:
“This was the first team challenge we have taken part in since our new brand was launched earlier this year and everyone had a lot of fun. The Viking Longboat Races are a fantastic community event which benefit many charities and it was great to see so many people taking part.”
The races involved teams rowing replica Viking longboats out of Peel harbour, around a buoy, and back to the harbour.
