COMPETITION SAILING By Francisco Kiko Sanchez Luna Sailing is one of the sports among others that have created more days of success & glory in Spain, as well as in Olympic competition as in Yacht Racing. Besides that, Spain has created some amazing beautiful spots and classy high standard places to enjoy this exiting sport.

The city Valencia was chosen to organize the last two America’s Cups and because of that, right now at this moment, Valencia is the most important Spanish city in the sailing scene, something that was really very hard to believe just a few years ago. Another important city on the sailing map is the city Alicante, which is and will be for next three editions the departure harbor of the Volvo Ocean Race, the highest level in the sailing competition & adventure. Last mentioned can only be compared to climbing an 8K mountain! Last but not least, the Spanish island Palma de Mallorca is the unbeatable place to start one of the very best sailing competitions of the Mediterranean, named the ´KINGS CUP ´ ("Copa del Rey").

Since quite some years, the most prestigious races of the world are organized in the Mediterranean waters, the so called ´Rolex Mediterranean´, this race has become worldwide one of the best known sailing events.

All these facts together allow us to state that Mediterranean and its coasts is currently world´s epicenter of all sail races.

ECOLOGY ______________________________________________________________ The development and use of green, clean and renewable energy; basically the environmental awareness, is one of the most important challenges of our current high tech society.

What is more ecologic and more respectful regarding environment than a sailboat? The technology and engineering shown in a race-sailboat is an analogy to the investments and research & development of a company preoccupied about being competitive and environmentally conscious.

Our strength: Everything functions with wind; the most available, sustainable and cleanest energy offered by nature.

DEVELOPMENTS_________________________________________________________ Reasons like the ones above mentioned make sense to explain why important companies from every industry are attracted to the sailing world; sponsoring events, supporting teams and creating new projects. This allows the large audience to get familiar with sailing but at the same time to maintain a high class image & status; which perfectly synchronizes with environmental awareness, using clean energy as a challenge.

Innovation, effort, high tech, team work, environmentally awareness, clean energy, no waste, ... all these values are transmitted by sailing races and that is exactly the reason we strongly believe that the next Sailing Racing Team MEDITERRANEAN CIRCUIT is the perfect frame for your corporate company image.

Following, you will find attached a consultancy report about positioning different sports and their values transmitted ; especially pointed out the values around sailing sports.
