Locally based software company sponsors the Seawolf of Southampton racing yacht, which has won more than 10 races and finished in the top three more than 25 times in its class.

GZIRA, MALTA, 17th October, 2013 — 2X Software, a global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, is setting sail in the upcoming Rolex Middle Sea race. 2X, which is headquartered in Malta and employs more than 50 people on the island, is the proud sponsor of the Seawolf of Southampton racing yacht. 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 local exposure will provide 2X with visibility alongside major domestic and foreign brands. Captained by established seaman Dave Latham, the Seawolf sets its sights on a positive finish this Saturday when it competes in the Rolex Middle Sea race starting from the Valletta Harbour.

“We are thrilled to see the 2X-branded Seawolf of Southampton sailing in our local waters. It’s a competitive racing yacht led by an enthusiastic and experienced skipper. Having the 2X logo alongside many major brands is great motivation for all our employees. The 2X imagery on the sails and hull make the boat look fast, so we hope this translates into continued success for the Seawolf racing team. We’d like to wish them luck in the upcoming Rolex Middle Sea Race.”
