Dublin, Ireland, June 25, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Cormac Farrelly, a WSI Consultant in Dublin has sponsored a WSI branded yacht and will also be participating in the prestigious Round Ireland Yacht Race which started on June 21. The exciting event is a non-stop race around Ireland that takes almost a week to complete. In addition to being the highlight of the sailing calendar in Ireland, it is also one of the top 3 offshore yacht races in the world.
Speaking about the event, Cormac says, "WSI is delighted to be associated with this prestigious event. The race offers WSI a great opportunity for exposure to national and international audiences. The overall event is sponsored by BMW which is a good brand to be associated with. The target audience is perfect - lots of sailors are business owners who need help with online marketing. There are 44 yachts entered for the race this year, including some maxi racers. The boat we are sponsoring was third overall in 2006 so we are hopeful to contend for a podium placing this time around as well."
98 FM, a local radio station in Dublin will include daily updates as the race progresses in their news round-up section. All of the boats are tracked real time with GPS satellite devices and information on the race will be made available by WSI via a micro site at www.plainsailing.ie.
