As this year is the first one in which we have about twice as many sponsors as we’ve had in the past couple of years, we’re proud to say that in this year’s annual DelMarVa rally we have a bigger grand prize. The final prize of the boat rally we’re having is $5000 and we believe that the prize winner will enjoy this substantial prize and will be able to repair his boat and prepare it for the next adventure they’ll go together on. If we were to assume what such a grand prize would be spent for, by the owners of a boat, there are tons of things that you could do and as the winner of the DelMarVa rally wouldn’t be a random boat, but a well taken care of one, it’s without a doubt that this amount of money would have to go to the cleaning and maintenance of it, but that’s just what we believe. After all this sport is for the lovers of sailing and the ocean and whatever they decide to use the prize for is their own choice and we believe that this choice would be great. After all has been said and done it’s obvious that we’d have to go through the list of sponsors that we have had, but first we’ll go over the rules which we have strictly followed when choosing our sponsorship deals.
- First and foremost, there haven’t been any gambling websites or bookmakers involved
- Second of all we haven’t taken any sponsors that promote smoking - our own policy
- And last but not least the sponsors that we’ve taken are only from the US,Canada and the UK
These three simple rules have left us with a serious list of over 25 sponsors some of which are the following:
- Hunter Marin Yacht Company
- MacGregor Yacht Corporation
- Columbia Yachts
- Hennessy Whisky
- Iceberg Vodka
- Prism Metal Polish
- Edson Steering Systems
And many many more.
These are just a few of them, but we are currently working on a page on which we’ll put a list of all the major sponsors of this year’s DelMarVa rally, where you could see which are the companies which made this whole event happen. It’s extremely cool to have so many companies present on our sponsorship list and they really helped with the organization from day one. Although there are still a few months until we get to the event itself, we believe that if any other companies or people want to contribute, they could contact us and talk about sponsoring the event. If they do cover all of the requirements we will try and put their name on the list. The grand prize would remain at $5000 though, as there are lots of expenses into the organization of this particular event and we have gone through some serious problems while making it happen. Hopefully it will all be a smooth sailing once it gets down to the event itself, but for now this is all we have for you. Keep yourself informed and sign on to the 2014 DelMarVa rally through our sign-up page.
We can’t way for the Summer and surely you can’t either! Well this is the website where you’ll find all the necessary information on it, so stay in touch.
For the people that can’t wait, here’s a video of one of the participants from 2011 that enjoyed participating in the rally. Hopefully this year we’ll get the same conditions as we did back then.
