The Yacht Racing Forum and Beneteau, the market leader for motorboats and leading sailboats producer, are pleased to announce the continuation of their partnership.

Gianguido Girotti, Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Product Strategy and Brands, will be the events’ keynote speaker on day two, addressing the commercial case for the sport of sailing. “Beneteau has always followed the Yacht Racing Forum with great interest “, he explains. ” Given the quality of talks, participants and intellectual exchange, we felt it was our mission to be more actively part of it to further sustain the leading edge technology and the sharing of ideas. ”

Bernard Schopfer, the organizer of the Yacht Racing Forum, believes that ” the support from the sports’ leading commercial actors reflects the evolution of the Forum over the years. Elite sport has always been at the heart of our concerns; it paves the way for the entire industry and directly impacts mainstream sailing. We are proud to welcome important brands such as Bénéteau. It confirms our mission to address the top of the sport as well as a wider and less specialised audience. ”

The Yacht Racing Forum will take place on November 25-26 in Bilbao, Spain. The conference and exhibition will once again reassemble the sports’ leading actors from all over the world.
