Sponsorship for Henry Bomby

Devonshire sailor gets title sponsorship for Figaro campaign

Thursday March 19th 2015, Author: James Boyd, Location: United Kingdom

Henry Bomby has managed to secure title Sponsorship for his Figaro campaign this year with Rockfish. The Devonshire sailor has been supported by the Seafood restaurant chain since 2013 and has had a long term commercial relationship with its owner Mitch Tonks since 2010. This is the first major Title Sponsorship agreement between the two.

Mitch Tonks explained: “Our support of Henry's sailing projects has grown and grown over the last few years from a relatively modest initial investment. But Henry has delivered some great results not only on the water but off it too. Our decision to become Henry's Title Sponsor for 2015 came after news that the race is visiting Torbay, which with the opening of the new 140 seat restaurant in Brixham, will mean we will have two restaurants in the Bay.

"It was a 'no brainer'. We plan to have many great events, parties and promotions in the restaurants throughout the season. We get a lot of comments from staff and visitors of the Rockfish restaurants in support of Henry and we are all excited to get behind Henry and follow his successes in 2015, together."

Last week, Tonks and Bomby christened the Rockfish boat in Torquay, which will be the UK stopover for this year's Solitaire du Figaro, which will visit the 'English Riviera' over 17-21 June.

Bombyb comented: “Mitch and I have worked together since I was 18, not always financially but always with help in terms of planning my campaigns and projects and how to go about looking for money. Over the years we have managed to carry out some great sponsorship activations for both Rockfish and others. It is great to see Mitch's belief in all that we do both on and off the water come to fruition with a Title Sponsorship deal for the 2015 season."

Henry will be competing in all events on the Figaro circuit leading up to the Solitaire du Figaro, including the first race of the season, the Solo Basse Normandie, a 150nm race starting on 26 March.

26th -28th March – Solo Basse Normandie
18th - 26th April – Solo Maitre Coq
