Are you a forward thinking and adventurous local business?
Would you like to get involved in something amazing?
Would you like to help me raise awareness & funds for some local causes?
Of course you are!
In which case, you should become a Crew Sponsor 🙂
I am taking part in the 2017-2018 Clipper Round The World Yacht Race. I will be crewing on Leg 8, in the summer of 2018. This is the homecoming leg, it will start in North America, will probably stop off in Londonderry, on route to Northern Europe before heading back home to a UK port. (Ports unconfirmed at this stage)
This involves crossing the North Atlantic; travelling close to the Flemish Cap, the fishing grounds made famous in the book & film “The Perfect Storm”. Sailing over 3000 miles in 24 days at sea. This is no holiday cruise.
The cost of taking part in my chosen Leg is £12,000. This includes 4 weeks of intensive training based at Clipper HQ in Gosport and some kit. However this is without the costs of insurance, flights, extra kit and chocolate. (I’m told we’ll be needing quite a lot of that).
I am hoping to bring together a team of like-minded adventurous sponsors to help me with the cost of my adventure. I’m not just taking myself on this trip – I’m taking West Norfolk with me.
I also want to raise awareness & funds for some local causes that are very dear to my heart. For further information on my chosen local causes, please read here.
So what can I offer potential sponsors?
My Crew Sponsors could receive for example:
- Mentions on this website
- Social Media and Press coverage
- Articles written by myself about my Clipper Journey
- Visits to your staff as an inspirational speaker
- Reviews of any kit provided
- a tour of a Clipper Yacht (subject to Clipper agreement)
- After dinner talks
There are strict rules on what I can offer a Crew Sponsor, however that list is not exhaustive and this can obviously be negotiated.
The Clipper Round The World Yacht Race has a huge global audience.
