Re: Sponsorship Request by the AY Match Racing Team

To whom it may concern

The AsianYachting Match Racing Team initiative is taking up the challenge and fielding a competitive Malaysian Team at this years qualifying rounds (Malaysian Match Racing Championship Nov 23 to 26). Then hopefully the unique privilege to go on and fight it out for a share of the RM1 million prize money that awaits the 12 International teams at the ISAF - World Match Racing Tour season-ending Monsoon Cup finals on (Dec 2-6th).

You may not be aware of the International popularity that the Monsoon Cup attracts to Malaysia each year. The event has transformed the sleepy predominately Muslim state of Terengganu on the North East coast of West Malaysia into the Match Racing Capital of Asia. The World Match Racing Tour is considered the "On the water equivalent to Formula 1 car racing". The Monsoon Cup is the final double point scoring event of the ISAF - WMRT and also where the annual World Champion Match Racing Team is crowned each year.

Twenty four year old Nazreen Ghani (Ayin) will be skippering the AY Team through the choppy waters and together with the Royal Selangor Yacht Club - Racing Teams (See Photos) are currently conducting team selection and weekly training sessions in Port Klang based on the Monsoon Sailing School syllabus they studied at Putrajaya, earlier in the year.

From now on, there are many expenses associated with running a serious racing team that will somehow have to be met. Travel costs, accommodation, boat rental, entry fee, damage deposit, Insurance just to mention a few. Presently we have relied solely on our own funds and hopefully with some support from the local business community, will help us achieve these goals and targets.

Sponsors interested in supporting our bid on the Match Racing scene should contact the AY Team Manager Hasslan (Lan) to discuss the following benefits.

In return for your sponsorship we would of course be willing to incorporate your company logo onto our team uniforms throughout the event. This unique offer will also entitle your company to some advertising spots on AY Team News (See Below) and Monsoon Cup 09 Race Reports as well as selected spots in other publications that are shared with over 2800 recipients and media partners all over the globe.

If entering the sailing/sports scene at the bargain basement level is something your company might be willing to consider. We would very much welcome the opportunity of having you support our team and perhaps forge long term promotional partnerships, along with the Teams future ambitions.

As time is short, we would welcome the opportunity to further pursue this proposal with you and can provide all the sponsorship details plus a full break down on the latest budget estimates.

Thank you for giving this urgent plea your careful consideration.

Kindest Regards
