Brisbane to Keppel Race Picks Up Sponsor

Some sponsorship news from Sail-World in Australia.

In today’s day and age sponsors are difficult to come by, but when an event such as the Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race shows in the calendar, the enthusiasm shown by potential sponsors is outstanding.

Ross O’Reilly from O’Reilly’s Real Estate is once again extremely proud to be a sponsor of the Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Race in 2009.

‘After the tremendous success of last year’s event and the great fun had by all, we are sure this year will be even more successful,’ said Ross.

‘This sponsorship presents a unique opportunity for our business to assist in bringing new people to our region to showcase its many outstanding attributes that we are proud and passionate about. Our boating and fishing playground around the beautiful Keppel Islands is second to none with the Keppel Bay Marina also a world class facility.’

The other sponsors to come onboard for this years race is the Rockhampton Regional Council, Capricorn Tourism, Budget Rental Cars, Rosslyn Bay Inn, Angove Wines and of course Club Marine as the naming rights sponsor. Clothing suppliers SLAM are also back on board to provide competitors and supporters official B2K race merchandise.

Host club Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in conjunction with Keppel Bay Marine will welcome the sailors to Keppel Bay as they cross the finish line in the tropical Capricorn region.

‘We look forward to watching all participants arrive in the Marina safely and joining in the race festivities,’ said Ross.
