After a successful first foray into sponsorship with our friends at Bohemian FC we’re at it again.

This time we’re taking to the oceans and getting involved in a thrilling world record challenge that will see an experienced crew attempting to circumnavigate the globe in record time.

We’ve agreed a deal with Goodheart Voyage Ltd. to be the exclusive gaming sponsor of Alan Priddy’s team as they attempt to wrestle the much coveted UIM powerboat world record away from the New Zealander Pete Bethune, which currently stands at 60 days 23 hours 49 minutes. The Global Circumnavigation Challenge team intend to cover the 24,000 miles at sea in under 50 days and we’re getting right behind them.

The agreement will see the logo feature on the boat, ‘Good Heart’ as well as the crew’s uniforms. We’ll also be participating in several events as the build up to the challenge gathers pace. Alan expects the challenge to begin in March 2012, giving plenty of time for the 90-feet boat to be constructed.

Speaking of the sponsorship agreement, Alan Priddy, Skipper and Founder of Goodheart Voyage Ltd, commented:

“We are honoured to partner with on our ground breaking world challenge. It represents a perfect fit between risk, daring, speed and innovation.

Both ventures have been revolutionary in the way they have brought their products to a global presence and the physical impact of our striking and unique boat carrying’s logo around the world encapsulates this spirit.”

With the fantastic news coverage that the challenge will generate and the potential of a documentary that will be distributed world-wide this deal is once again great news for our affiliates as we seek to increase the visibility of our brand.
