Pilote Media, publishers of yacht racing business website yachtsponsorship.com, have announced a new directory of professional sailing. The Dark Blue Book – the who’s who of yacht racing will be published in early 2009, containing information about key people and organisations from around the world.
“Although competitive sailing has been around for a long time, yacht racing as a professional endeavour is relatively new,” says David Fuller of Pilote Media. “Having launched yachtsponsorship.com earlier this year we have seen a growing number of people who are interested in the business of yacht racing. Other sports like Motor Racing have similar directories and the market for competitive sailing has reached a point where it can support a product like this.”
The directory will feature people and companies who are involved in the business of yacht racing including teams, rights holders, event organisers, sponsors, press and photographers and suppliers. Individuals or companies who wish to be considered for inclusion in the directory can register their submission at http://www.darkbluebook.com.
The Dark Blue Book will be available for pre-order from the website in the coming months.
