The vast majority of crews who decide to row the Pacific manage to find some sponsorship to cover many of the costs they incur in the run up to and during the race. On average crews find sponsorship for over 50% of the total cost of the trip. Often crews find sponsors to help them by supplying them with products or services or by cash sponsorship in return for their logo on the boat and website, benefiting from the media interest in your race entry, naming the boat and general involvement in your campaign etc.
Don’t forget that you can also sell the boat after completing the row. New Ocean Wave offers a brokerage service to all race entrants to help sell their boats after the event to the next race entrants. Also all race entrants benefit from a series of exclusive discounts from our partner companies saving thousands of dollars on the cost of an ocean rowing crossing.
