Over the three years that ABYC was involved with the Hobie 16 Nationals – from 2012 to 2014 – various ABYC sailing event organiser teams managed to stage magnificent regattas and gain maximum exposure for their main sponsors – The Boardwalk and Sebago. Print, Magazine, Online and Television exposure was valued in excess of R240 000.00 every year by News monitoring agencies. Pretty good figures for a ‘cinderella sport’.
ABYC has masses of experience in running local, provincial, national and international regattas and has the ability to leverage large amounts of targeted exposure for any sponsor.
At present we have a number of products available to potential sponsors: (please circulate this article to those you think may benefit)
- Quaggas – R30 000. These boats are used for training of youth and adult sailors as well as for match racing in the harbour. We need to purchase new sails, do some fixing and build trailers. We are offering naming right sto each boat plus sail and other branding opportunites.
