Corporate Sponsorship

Any company, group or organisation that has offered me financial or practical support is a Corporate Sponsor. In fact any such sponsorship is actually as a Crew Supporter, as detailed in my contractual agreement with Clipper Ventures. The nature of the return on investment that I can offer for such sponsorship is limited by that contract; however there are things I am permitted to do, part of which is publicity via a post on this website. I would welcome the opportunity for a face-to-face discussion. Please contact me via my email address AnitaSailsAgain@about.me in the first instance.
