Dear Potential Sponsor

Sponsorship Request – Perie Banou II Sydney Hobart Race 2008

I am writing on behalf of Jon Sanders, David Dicks and other committed crew members of the
Perie Banou II Sydney Hobart Race team 2008.

The crew are a determined team of yachtsmen with years of collective ocean sailing and racing
experience, who are personally investing their individual time, resources and skills in
preparation for the coming Sydney Hobart Race. A brief synopsis of Jon and David’s
achievements is attached, and further information on the team’s experience and skills can be
found on our website

Our objectives are to:

   1. Restore Perie Banou II to prime ocean racing condition – a grassroots endeavour
      by a group of working men

   2. Demonstrate the crew’s sailing prowess in the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race – a
      remarkable team performing at its best on a distinguished yacht

   3. Achieve the position of overall winner of the Race.

You are invited to contribute to this internationally significant yachting endeavour and to be
recognised as a supporter of iconic yachting achievers Jon Sanders and David Dicks.

Work on Perie Banou II is underway and we have secured some sponsorship, but there is still
significant expenditure and work required. We welcome any offers of support, no matter how

Attached is an outline of the categories of sponsorship and some of the opportunities that we
are able to offer. Please direct your enquiries to me by phoning 0408 951642 or by emailing

Yours sincerely

Cheryl Song Loong
Team Organiser

Celebrated for two and three consecutive non-stop, unassisted circumnavigations of
the globe, Jon has achieved numerous records incorporated into the Guinness Book of

vessel unassisted and solo - 71,023 nautical miles”; and “Longest period ever spent
alone at sea - 657 days”. Jon has circumnavigated the world seven times in yachts and
undertaken many other long passages.

Since the year 2000, Jon has skippered a 44ft sloop from Sydney to Europe via the
Red Sea and Suez Canal, which comprised his 11th crossing of the Indian Ocean and
fourth transit of the Suez. Most recently, he has completed two further west-east
crossings of the Indian Ocean. Other ocean races and voyages include:
      Sydney Hobart in Perie Banou and Perie Banou II, five times (1977 3 rd place in
       Division, 1978, 1984 3rd place overall, 1989 and 1994).

       (i.e. Cape Horn plus four other capes - Good Hope, Leeuwin, South East,
