The regatta is held every two years and gathers 80 professionals and sailing enthusiasts from different countries.


Why sponsoring our Mini Transat campaign?

1 / It presents your company as socially responsible business: support of sailing - an environmentally friendly sport, deeply embedded in culture and traditions all over the world - enhances business reputation.

2 / It is an effective way to market your product or services: achieving high public relations KPIs in Europe and Russia in a non-standard way - and with minimal investment!

3 / Support of a sailing team speaks about healthy and positive philosophy of the company. This contributes not only to its public image, but also to its capitalisation growth, especially in the modern high-tech markets, where the cost of intangible assets is quite high.

4 / Sponsoring Mini Transat boat is an effective tool for large-scale communication with different groups of the target audience - from clients to partners and investors.
