What's at the bottom of this intriguingly smart invitation?

It’s the British Classic Yacht Club regatta in Cowes next, a week-long series of skirmishes and celebrations amid a great fleet of classic yachts from gaffers to 1960s ocean racers. Can’t wait.

The regatta is sponsored by Panerai and I have been enjoying their media invitation.

It doesn’t quite top the tin and compass set that Hugo Boss sent for their IMOCA 60 boat launch (here), but I loved the experience of opening up all the elaborate gatefolds and then finding a rubber wristband – like a pea on a silk cushion!
