Australia is an awesome country with a massive variety of things to do, place to see, stay and visit. Traveling through any of the States or Territories of Australia you will find desert, rainforest, mountain ranges, and the most beautiful beaches on earth! Australia is not only a fantastic sailing destination, there is more than you can imagine in its heart.
I love to show off about Australia, and think that more tourists should come over and enjoy the beauty and excitement that every city and country town has to offer. So, to kill two birds with one stone, I am using my 2015 Mini Transat campaign to promote Australia, its industry, hospitality and services. I would like to welcome as many people onboard this team as possible. I am very excited about this campaign, and it even contains a bit of a twist, Read on to find out more and Join Team Australia in the 2015 Mini Transat!
“In the 2013 Mini Transat hundreds of spectators asked me what it was like in Australia. Everybody I spoke to said Australia was always on their list of things to do, and after convincing them to jump on a plane, they asked where they should go, what they should do and where they should stay. This prompted me as part of my 2015 campaign to showcase Australia and its best attributes”
It is time to launch an amazing campaign open not only to adventure and tourism providers, but also government bodies and tourism organisation.
As the only Australian entry currently qualified for the 2015 Mini Transat I am focusing on building a completely Australian sponsorship base. The campaign focus will be on a tourist attraction from every state providing the main sponsorship, and other Australian brands such as Zhik providing clothing and hardware. It gives me great pleasure to announce the 100% Australian Mini Transat 2015 Advertising Campaign
HERE IS THE DEAL – Every Australian loves a bet!
I am offering a range of tourism and adventure providers in Australia a unique opportunity to sponsor me in this event. For only $3000 you can buy a standard sized signage space on my boat Aus 816, have full sponsorship privileges and gain all the perks from a international sponsorship package. One lucky sponsor will get their name drawn out of a hat and have the privilege of the primary sponsor! That means the lucky winner will be given over 200m2 of billboard space and over $200,000 worth of advertising space. This is incredible PR and sponsorship value.
2015 Mini Transat Race will be one of the most exciting and extreme ocean races in the world. The race is a solo race 4000nm across the Atlantic against the worlds best sailors in a fleet of 80 high performance 6.5m yachts.
Sponsorship is a key factor in every Mini Transat Campaign. Without the required sponsorship I will not be able to race in the 2015 event, and even with fifteen months to go before the start the clock is ticking. It is vital for me to find 40,000 Euro before May 2014 or Aus 816 will have to be sold and I will not have a boat to race in the 2015 event. Why 816 and not another mini? The reason is that the RG650 is the fastest series boat on the water and I have already qualified in No 816. This means that I can concentrate more on the boat including two boat tuning with other RG650’s, as well as more sail testing. I also have more time to do the races that I want to do, and can focus on the tactics in the race a lot more than last year. AUS 816 is qualified and ready to go, all I need is the funds to purchase the boat from my previous sponsors at RG and we are ready to RACE!
