The eighth and final Act of the 2015 Extreme Sailing Series™ presented by Land Rover will be held on Sydney Harbour from 10 to13 December 2015. The world’s best sailors will compete head-to-head in a fleet of spectacularly fast Extreme 40 carbon fibre racing catamarans to determine the winner of the Champions Trophy. This major global event is being supported by the NSW Government and Tourism Australia.
The lead up events in 2015 were held in Singapore, Muscat (Oman), Qingdao (China), Cardiff (UK), and Hamburg (Germany), Saint Petersburg (Russia).; The seventh Act will be held in Istanbul (Turkey) next month.
The Sydney Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 8, promises to provide thrills for competitors and fans alike. Thousands of spectators are expected to line the foreshore at Mrs Macquarie’s Point adjacent to the Royal Botanic Gardens to watch the action on a racecourse set between the Sydney Opera House and Fort Denison.
Brand Dimensions has been contracted by OC Sport (UK), the event organiser to develop a unique race village to be set up at Mrs Macquarie’s Point as well as manage local sponsorships, partner opportunities and event activations.
Kris Willand, MD of Brand Dimensions, said, “Racing will take place just metres from the shore in an easy to understand format which will excite everyone who enjoys action sports. The race village at Mrs Macquarie’s Point will provide prime viewing and opportunities for truly unparalleled VIP corporate entertaining experiences”.
“The Extreme Club™ hospitality venue at Fleet Steps will combine the excitement of Extreme 40 racing with first class hospitality facilities and the chance to meet the athletes while entertaining VIP guests.”
“A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are now available. The most exciting package is that of the Host Venue Partner which includes a dedicated, fully branded Extreme 40 with an Australian sailing team to compete against the best in the world as a ‘wild card’ entry. This exclusive offering provides the chance for your guests to become part of the team and be on board during the race as guest sailors. In addition, corporate sailing on the harbour before and after racing is an additional ‘money-can’t-buy opportunity’. Overall, Extreme Sailing presents a unique experiential concept in professional sport sponsorship!”
