2021 NAMING SPONSOR
– CITY OF PERTH
Investment in events is critical to re-invent and revive Perth as a destination of choice to visit, live, play, work, invest or study in. The City has developed the Event Sponsorship program which will help build capacity within the sector, with the aim of creating an ‘always something on in the city’ perception that attracts visitors.
The City of Perth recognises the importance of a diverse event calendar that delivers social and economic benefits to support our aspiration to be vibrant, connected and progressive city.
The City’s Strategic Community Plan includes the objective for a safe, activated and welcoming City that celebrates its diversity and sense of community, providing a unique educational, cultural, sporting and lifestyle offer.
To contribute to this vision, the City supports events that attract increased visitation, encourage broad community participation and create activation of city spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy. The City encourages applications from events that actively engage local businesses and promote new economic and tourism opportunities.
2021 MAJOR SUPPORTER
– WARREN JONES FOUNDATION
Warren Jones of “Australia II” fame died suddenly on 17th May, 2002. His sudden and untimely death was a bitter blow to his many friends throughout Australia and around the World. Warren made a fabulous contribution to local and international yachting with perhaps his greatest achievement occurring in September 1983, when as Alan Bond’s lieutenant, he led a group of Australian yachtsmen to victory to win the 1983 Americas Cup from the New York Yacht Club for the first time in 132 years of competition. This feat brought Australia to the forefront of international sailing competition. Warren also became one of Australia’s leading businessmen and community leaders and played a big role in the development of young sailors. He had a down to earth nature, enormous amounts of energy, a competitive spirit, great courage and determination to reach his goals and was always ready to give the younger generation his words of wisdom and moral support.
The aim of the foundation, named in Warren Jones’ memory and started by his many friends and associates, is to give a new generation of yachtsmen and women the chance to live their dreams – just as Warren did his. The main beneficiary of the Warren Jones Foundation is the Warren Jones International Youth Regatta.
