Atlantic PowerBoat Challenge - Sponsors

The first consists with the financing of the boat itself which was assured almost completely thanks to the own capital stocks or thanks to the assistance close friends. The second part comprises all that is necessary to the crossing but which was not essential to the boat. It is for example the satellite telephone, the card reader, embarked data processing (computer) and even the bulky tanks. A commercial version would not have indeed needed reserves of 1300 liters. Also this inventory the means of safety enter as the beacon of distress or the inflatable buoy of cockpit.
