DALLAS, TX, August 9th, 2013 — 2X Software, a global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, today announced it has launched a major 3-year sponsorship deal with the racing yacht Seawolf of Southampton. The Seawolf is an ultra competitive, IRC optimized yacht which races in all the major international competitions including the Rolex Fastnet, Rolex Middle Sea and the Giraglia Rolex Cup.
Over the last five years, the Seawolf has won more than 10 races and finished in the top three more than 25 times in its class. 2X will be fully branded on the boat’s sails and hull, along with the sailing team’s clothing gear. The global exposure will provide 2X visibility alongside major technology companies and allows 2X to follow the trend of marrying top brands with the sport of sailing. Captained by established seaman Dave Latham, the Seawolf sets its sights on a positive finish this Sunday when it competes in the Rolex Fastnet race starting from Cowes, UK.
“We are extremely excited to be sponsoring the Seawolf of Southampton. It’s a competitive racing yacht led by an enthusiastic and experienced skipper. Having the 2X logo alongside many major global brands puts us in a position to expand our exposure with the best of the best. The 2X branding on the boat and sails make the boat look fast, so we hope this translates into the continued success for the Seawolf racing team. We’d like to wish them good luck in their upcoming races.”
