How to become a sponsor

Sponsorship Introduction – Engineering Challenge Cup 2007
This is to introduce you to the Engineering Challenge Cup (“ECC”) and to present the marketing opportunities available to companies wishing to become involved with sponsorship.


In 1994 a group of friends working for engineering contractors chartered three yachts and decided to race between their overnight destinations. The winner organised a similar holiday the next year and that is how the Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) was born. From this humble and informal beginning, it has grown rapidly to the point when it is now the Mediterranean’s largest privately organised international roving regatta. Indeed, it has become so popular that for the first time this year the number has been capped at seventy yachts, without which it would have exceeded one hundred yachts. In 2007 the fleet will assemble in Gocek, Turkey for the 14th years ECC week on 28th April.
Each yacht represents a company associated with the engineering industry. Despite its size, it still remains an informal amateur event although the organisation has had to become more professional.

Positive exposure in front of this community, which includes many senior decision-makers, can greatly enhance your company’s profile and prospects within the engineering and related industries. The event has started to attract media interest from the yachting press, engineering publications and tourist organisations in the host country. As such it presents an important marketing opportunity and many important and long-term business and personal relationships are built up over the week.

In previous years the event has attracted some excellent sponsors who have provided clothing, services and other goods which have been very much appreciated by the participants. The sponsors have had their logo displayed on the crews clothing, links included in the official ECC website, advertisements in the ECC logbook, flags on the committee boat and stickers on the yachts. This has given excellent exposure to the sponsoring companies and many have increased their sponsorship in subsequent years.
Sponsors providing accessories or clothing will see their company benefit from the marketing exposure for many years to come, as the best quality items come back every year.

Your support to sponsor the event will be highly appreciated, and we will do our utmost to promote the sponsors during the event, and we will get some interest from the press.

During the week Articles will be made available from the website, covering daily news and race results.
