We are delighted to announce that we have now agreed a sponsorship deal with Atlantic Business Resources plc.(www.atlanticbr.co.uk)
Atlantic have been associated with us from the start but have now decided to give us significant financial support as well as some assistance in procurement and this is a tremendous boost for us.
Atlantic specialise in fast cost reduction and profit management and are so confident that their £5+billion of consolidated annual purchasing power can reduce in excess of 25 areas of common spend that they promise "NO SAVINGS - NO FEE".
We will be carrying their details along the side of Pirate for all to see as we circumnavigate the UK and feel sure that there will be mutual benefit to all.
We look forward to meeting representatives from their organisation in the various locations we will visit en-route.
Our sign maker Tom Harker has laboured long in to the night to produce the signage for the boat and we are very grateful to him, especially since the gusty conditions this afternoon threatened to put the Atlantic logo around him rather than on the boat!
Now all we want is for the new Racor pumps to go on OK tomorrow accompanied by the props and the new Mastervolt equipment and I will have only the cleaning left to do!
Although we go to Portsmouth this weekend, keep watching the site as we will update next week on how we get on in the scrutineering examinations and the lead-up to the start!
