The PYA 2010 Christmas Ball

PYA announces the Christmas Ball Sponsors and Entertainment. Friday, Dec 17th 2010: Carlton InterContinental Hotel, Cannes. From its humble beginnings as a warm holiday gathering for a few Riviera-based yacht skippers and friends, the PYA Christmas Ball has grown into one of the regions premiere events, attended by PYA members from the area – and all over the world.

The ladies of the PYA work hard all year round organizing this massive event, which features a live band, floor show, enormous raffle and various competitions

. They can only do their magic with the help of many loyal sponsors, most of whom return year after year, making this their own company holiday celebration. Reflecting the international nature of the PYA itself, sponsors of the PYA Christmas Ball hail from several countries.

Leading the slate of generous sponsors as title sponsor, are yacht industry leaders Burgess Crew Services (Guernsey) PCC Ltd. Antibes-based sponsors Peter Insull’s have been part of the PYA family for many years. International Technic Marine will bring their team from Marseilles, while SO.SE.MA’s Shore Crew will add their own Italian flair. Switzerland’s Hug Engineering will be joined this year by Varador 2000 (repair and refit) out of Spain. Raffle prizes and gifts have been provided by more than 20 PYA corporate members and supporters.

Held again at the elegant Carlton InterContinental Hotel in Cannes, entertainment led by Master of Ceremonies Peter Mackley will include popular singer Soul Man and dynamic female violin duo, Viva.

Tickets, additional sponsorship opportunities and special hotel rates at the Carlton are available through the PYA office.
