A unique opportunity

support the Ukrainian entry in the Whitbread Round-the-Worlcf Race1993-4

HETMANSAHAIDACHNY AIMS AND ASPIRATIONS The Hetman Sahaidachny Syndicate was established in pursuit of a number of key ideals:

1. To commission and build a competitive Whitbread 6 0 class yacht to compete in 93-4 Whitbread Round the World Race. 2. To harness the advanced technologies available from the decommissioned Soviet Defence Plants and demonstrate to the West the capabilities of the Llkrainian Aviation Industry - in a highly competitive global arena. 3. To attract worldwide exposure for Ukraine's natural resources, technologies, manufacturing potential and vast surplus of low cost, skilled and technically rich labour. 4. To ignite the imagination of every Ukrainian and accelerates national demand for tweway communication and co-operation with the West. 5. To attract a major league western sponsor to underwrite the actual race costs and develop the above ideals throughout the 9-month race duration - and afterwards. HETMAN SAHNDACHNY PROJECT UPDATE Under the charismatic direction of Project Manager/Skipper Eugene Platon, the Hetman Sahaidachny project has now completed the first three legs of the 93/4 Whitbread.

I.Bruce Farr designed '2nd generation' W.60 yacht construction carried out at Kharkov Joint-StockAviation Factory. Laser-beam technology was used to achieve accuracy to Farr drawings of 0.02 - 003mm - a standard unlikely to have been achieved elsewhere in the fleet.

2. Working in close co-operation with Fox's Marina, Ipswich, on the UK's East Coast, the complete rig, hydraulics, engine, electronics and other ancillary equipment were obtained in the UK and flown to the Ukraine for installation. The yacht was launched on the Black Sea on 3rd August 1993 and sailed non-stop to

Ipswich via the Mediterranean. 'The race committee recognised this as the qualifying distance and validated the entry. Hetman Sahaidachny was based in lpswich until September 15 for final testing and preparation. 3. The design, construction and crew credentials of the Ukrainian entry have formed a combination that hasalready proved competitive in the W.60 fleet. HETMAN SAHAIDACHNY FUNDING The Hetman Sahaidachny project has been news story No 1 for some time in the Ukraine which has generated high levels of national support. Principal costs thus far have been borne by the Ukrainian Commercial Bank, Gradobank, who are anxious to develop a market economy within the Ukraine leading to expansion outside the borders of the CIS. Materials support has been provided by the builders Viter - and the French composite manufacturer Sicomin who have developed the advanced hull materials used in the construction. Western support has come from FBW (Formula Business Work] a multi-level American company with a wide range of services and interest in converting the Ukrainian economy to market. FBW-Hetman has been established to manage the Hetman Sahaidachny Syndicate and market the defence plant consortium. HETMAN SAHAIDACHNY DILEMMA To have built a world class yacht and already completed the first three legs of the 93-4 Whitbread, the Hetman Sahaidachny Syndicate have achieved a great deal. Against extraordinary odds. To complete the remaining three legs of the race, the Syndicate requires additional funding of $250,000. And it recognises that it has to attract a major sponsor from


outside he CIS with the visian to identify and maxirnise what could prove o unique opportunity.

The benefits to o principal sponsor of o Whitbreod yacht during the course of ihe race itself are widely recognised. The general consensus of sponsors after h e last event was of tremendous overall sotisfoction. The race format had at last provoked worldwide interest in yachting and the exceptional 9-month durction provided an unprecedented continuity of exposure. And with BT's revol~tionor~ digital video y s k m on b a r d Helman Sahaidachny - live pictures for worldwide syndication are tronsmi~edto further enhance race progress and activity to an expect& audience in excess of I .2 billion. Because of the similarity in specification and design of the Whitbread 60 class division in the race, booI-owboat competition is closer than hfore - ensuring greater uwareness and interest.
