Falmouth Sailing Week relies on financial contributions from both the business and public sectors to deliver all the elements of an exciting programme both on and off the water. It presents an opportunity for sponsors to promote their organisation and develop their brand through a dynamic, active event with a broad following.
All our supporters will be recognised with the addition of logos on all printed materials and will be included on the Falmouth Sailing Week site which regularly attracts over 60,000 hits during August alone, as well as the PoFSA website.
For enhanced sponsorship opportunities we offer a variety of packages and this document sets out the formal levels of benefit which are available under each. Please note this is a general overview as we work with all sponsors on a case by case basis to ensure mutual benefit. Many sponsors maintain a link with the week on a long-term basis.
