The Extreme Sailing Series is set to become a brand new international fixture on the Singapore sports calendar until 2015, allergist in a three year deal announced between Series organisers OC Sport, the Singapore Sports Council and Aberdeen Asset Management.
For Aberdeen Asset Management, the sponsorship of Team Aberdeen Singapore and their status as the main Local Partner for the Singapore Act, adds to the global asset manager’s growing sailing sponsorship portfolio, which includes ‘Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week’; an event where they had their first foray into Extreme 40 sailing in 2011, entering a British team into the UK leg of the 2011 Extreme Sailing Series.
“We are delighted to bring the Extreme Sailing Series to Singapore as it promises lots of entertainment and we have developed a successful association with sailing elsewhere in the world” said Hugh Young, Managing Director at Aberdeen Asset Management Asia Limited. “We are happy to be able to support Singapore’s sailing ambitions and the inclusion of two young Singapore sailing stars will generate great local interest.”
The action in Singapore will begin on the 11th April with the official media day before the free to enter public Race Village opens from the 12th.
