The Polkerris Beach Company has finished its 2011 season on a high by scooping the Silver award for ‘Best Tourism Activity, Sport & Experience Of The Year’ at the Cornwall Tourism Awards!
Technically, the award was presented to the centre for their outstanding windsurfing tasters but in practice, the judging panel assessed the business as a whole. With rivals such as the St Mellion International Resort and the world renowned Minack Theatre, manager Lynn Shillito commented “It’s very nice to know that we are up there with the best in Cornwall as once again the region was voted ‘Top Holiday Destination’ at the British Travel Awards. We also won Silver last year, so it was a huge pat on the back for the whole team.”
With windsurfing instructors such as Adam Lewis who ranked 17th at the last PWA wave event and George Shillito who finished 3rd nationally in 2010, Bob said “it is to no surprise that the centre just keeps growing from strength to strength and we look forward to welcoming many more watersports enthusiasts new and old next year!”
