After a difficult start to the year and a slow and dry Easter period, the Regatta Group is reporting a strong recovery with an 18 percent sales increase in the first half of the year and double-digit growth for each of its three brands. Regatta is up by 18 percent, Craghoppers by 13 percent and Dare2b by a massive 75 percent, in comparison with the same period in 2010. Strong results are also expected for the second half of the year.
