Even with the heroic efforts of all the 150+ strong organising team, most of whom are volunteers, the quality of the event would still be impossible to achieve without the generous backing of our sponsors. In 2017 over 100 companies supported the tournament in a host of different ways and many of them have been with us for the majority of our 30 year history.
Our sponsors, who include leading shipyards, yacht brokers, insurance brokers and management companies as well as refit, repair, service and supply companies, come from all sectors of the superyacht industry.
Traditionally, our sponsors have always been responsible for a particular part of the event (the buggies, the marshals, the holes and bars on the course etc.) and we have always been very proud of the individual way in which this involves our sponsors rather than have them disappear into a “tier” of 20 or 30 companies all doing exactly the same thing. However, as they all contribute so much, it is only right that we spell out exactly what we are giving in return which is why we have grouped the different sponsorship opportunities into four ascending levels, Birdie, Eagle, Albatross and Condor with a clearly detailed package of privileges and benefits for each category.
As always, we have many new companies wanting to participate and so we have updated our comprehensive Sponsorship Packages document which explains all the varying ways in which companies can get involved. We will as usual offer existing sponsors first refusal on their current sponsorship so some packages will not be available but we include them in the document as we do want everyone to see how many different ways there are of taking part.
With so many people’s contributions, the 2017 tournament was a spectacular occasion and better than ever and, as always, an opportunity to enjoy exceptional levels of corporate hospitality at a unique event offering three days of relaxation, friendly competition, spectacular entertainment and fine dining. In addition, it provided the chance to meet owners, captains and crew, shipyards and suppliers, brokers and managers and many other leading lights from the superyacht industry.
