Taking advantage of Ahoy!'s advanced boating safety technology, the racing sailboat competed in the 600-mile regatta through the Aegean Sea
NEW YORK, July 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ahoy!®, the digital insurance company for recreational boating, is proud to announce its sponsorship of Team Ahoy! in the Aegean 600 regatta. As the boats traversed the 600 nautical mile race across the Aegean Sea, Team Ahoy! used the advanced boating safety technology that is part of Ahoy!'s boat insurance offering.
The race began at the foot of the spectacular ancient Temple of Poseidon located nearby at Cape Sounio, Greece, and took sailors on a grand tour of the Aegean islands. A challenging course that required sailors to adapt to shifting wind angles and speeds, the race tested the mettle of those brave enough to undertake the same voyage that Greek sailors have faced for thousands of years.
"The Aegean 600 is an iconic race, and it would be fair to say that it is one that many sailors from across the globe dream of participating in," said Ofer Sela, Captain of Team Ahoy! and one of Ahoy!'s founders. "Ahoy! is a partner for sailors and boaters, helping protect and insure their beloved vessels and providing them with peace of mind at all times, so we are proud to have worn the brand and used Ahoy!'s technology as we raced."
"We built our company to support and protect passionate boaters and sailors, and Ofer and his team are the embodiment of that," said Amit Nisenbaum, CEO and Founder of Ahoy!. "As a lifelong boater myself, I am glad that even though I personally couldn't take part in the regatta this year, Ofer and his team did so with the assistance of our technology and made all of us at Ahoy! proud to be his partner."
Built by boaters for boaters, upon purchase of an Ahoy! boat insurance policy customers receive an onboard smart boat kit, which works alongside a proprietary mobile app to offer advanced telemetry features that proactively help reduce risk and prevent damage or injury for boats and boaters. Founded in early 2021 Ahoy!'s policies are already available in select US states and are being rolled out nationally in the coming months.
