BWB signes youth sailing team name sponsorship agreement

Baltic Workboats (BWB) and Saaremaa Merispordi Selts (SMS) have signed an agreement with which BWB will become a name sponsor of Saaremaa’s youth sailing team. From 2017 – 2021 the top young sailors of Saaremaa will compete under our logo and are representing Sailing Team Baltic Workboats!

The agreement sees BWB supporting SMS youth programme with 20,000 euros a year within the next five years with the total amount of 100,000 euros. “This is by far the biggest sponsorship agreement our yard has ever signed”, said Margus Vanaselja, CEO of BWB. “The primary goal is not the sporting results, but to get youngsters out from their rooms and experience sea and sailing. Should the results follow it’s even better!”

Commodore of SMS Margus Männik thanked BWB for the support: “The long-term agreement allows us to set sights on multi-year development programmes. It’s a big step forward that will help us to take Saaremaa’s youth sailing back to the top.”
