Sailor still needs sponsorsÂ
BUSINESSES are needed to fill the last few sponsorship places for a round the world sailing challenge.Â Â
Gosport sailor Alex Alley hopes to break the current record of 137Â days, 20 hours, 1 minute and 57Â seconds with his expedition, which sets off in November.Â
However, the boat still needs sponsors.Â
Alex said: '˜Although we have quite a few of our sails now sponsored,Â we still have a couple of sails that require sponsors '“ a '˜furling reacher'Â which we expect to be in use a lot of theÂ timeÂ and a couple of spinnakers, all there to be branded and used for marketing.
'˜As the sails are all custom made, it takes up to sevenÂ weeks to build a sail and a further week to have it branded so time is rapidly running out for anyone who would like to have a branded sail go around the world.'Â
