Anything that Floats – SPONSOR

There are three levels of sponsorship:

  1. Naming rights sponsor (taken by Guerrini Marine Construction) – meaning that the whole weekend is under the banner of your name or that of your organisation such as ABC HARDWARE ANYTHING THAT FLOATS WEEKEND. There can only be one naming rights sponsor and the cost of this sponsorship is R20 000.
  2. Event sponsor – meaning that you own one of the events such as the Comedy and Cocktail evening. The cost of this sponsorship option is R10 000 and there are four slots available:
    1. Comedy & Cocktail evening
    2. Gala Dinner & Wine Auction
    3. Open Race
    4. Closing Braai
  3. Element sponsor – this level of sponsorship would include coverage of aspects of the weekend that aren’t covered by the naming rights or event sponsors and the costs will vary according to the ‘service’. Examples are as follows:
    • Video coverage
    • Photography
    • T-shirts
    • Medals and/or trophies
    • Prizes
    • Items – such as wine – for the auction
    • Wine for dinner (taken by KWV)
    • Gala dinner arrival drink (taken by Cruxland with Fitch & Leeds)
    • Cheese for cocktail evening
    • Etc etc

What you get in return is some or all of the following (depending on the level of sponsorship):
