Become a sponsor

Sponsorship of Ocean Crusaders provides a unique opportunity to align your business with an environmental cause in a high profile campaign covering several countries.

No one takes a wages from Ocean Crusaders so all funds go directly towards our crusades.


  • An opportunity to support a sound environmental campaign
  • An avenue to promote your products to the educational &/or marine sector
  • An opportunity to have Ocean Crusaders Founder Ian Thomson personally help you create a greener workplace and image for your company
  • An opportunity to have a world record holder and founder of Ocean Crusaders as a guest speaker at a function of your choice
  • An opportunity for coverage across the globe through all types of media, forums, online gaming site virtual regatta and other websites
  • An opportunity to go sailing onboard our ocean racing vessel with your team

Become a partner

We are now seeking partners to support our crusades.  We are seeking companies that:

  • Would like to make a difference
  • Would like to market their products to the educational &/or marine sector
  • Want to portray an environmental awareness to their clients or for their brand
  • Are looking to improve their own environmental impact in their office/workplace
  • Would like to support an organisation that is educating our youth on how to look after the oceans and our environment
  • Would like to support an organisation that is making a difference every day to the impact we have on our oceans

A partnership, not a sponsorship

In return for your financial support, we will work with you to create environmental awareness for your brand/company, promote your products within the primary education &/or marine sector and will be available for inspirational/educational talks to your clients or staff.  For select level of sponsorships, we will also take you and your friends sailing on our ocean racing vessel in any one of several available locations.

Below is an image of our new yacht, due for reveal in November 2012.  Your brand could be on this yacht as we sail the Sydney to Hobart, Melbourne to Osaka, Airlie Beach Race Week, Hamilton Island Race Week, Solo Trans Tasman and Ian Thomson’s 2014 Solo Around Australia World Record Attempt.


Our ultimate goal is a race called the Volvo Ocean Race.  It races around the world and is regarded as the formula 1 of sailing.  To have our message on one of these machines as it visits countries across the globe is the perfect method of getting our education program the publicity it needs to get into every school in the world.  Below is a video of sailing at it’s very best. Whoever said sailing was boring doesn’t know what it is like at the top. Your name could be part of our campaign just like Puma on this vessel in the Volvo Ocean Race.
