Title Sponsor – MailASail Communications

The team at MailASail are hugely proud to be the title sponsor of this year’s AZAB (#MAZAB19).

A family-owned business, we’ve been in operation since 2001 when we produced our first email acceleration system as a bespoke request for a private customer. It proved so popular that we quickly offered it as a commercial service on a wider basis. Since then, we have actively developed the email compression product based on customer feedback and incorporated the features you see today, such as the weather downloads and the teleport-blog.

We believe that this makes us unique; we have developed the system to meet customer requirements, rather than building a product in isolation! We take pride in our excellent customer service and strive to ensure you get a full and accurate picture of suitable options for your adventure.

We will be assisting with improving communication systems for all participants of the race, including facilitating on-board blog posts and updates to make following the race even more exciting for participants and spectators alike.

Crews will be able to share the highs and lows of their journey with their shore-side audience, as well as communicate with the race committee to find out how they are faring against their fellow competitors. It also allows friends and family to stay up-to-date with the fleet’s latest adventures from the comfort of dry land!

We have a great offer for competitors that want lots of weather data to their device, to be able to post exciting photos and videos of the passage and to keep in touch via WhatsApp:

An upgraded satellite phone called a BGAN will do the job. Don’t buy – rent one today for just £200. It’s a quick and easy plug-in for your existing comms – but this offer is limited, so hurry!  

  • BGAN hire cost: £200 +vat (for up to a 30 day period, starting from the day of delivery in Falmouth to the day it is received back at our London office)
  • Daily coverage: £10 per day for every day over the 30 day period
  • Delivery: included
  • Return arrangements: equipment to be returned at your cost to our London office using a tracked & insured service
  • Refundable deposit: £500 (subject to a full inspection on return)

(Return arrangements: equipment to be returned at your cost to our London office using a tracked & insured service. We can add a Red Box to the hire package for just £140 to help you manage and aggressively firewall your usage and pair up with your teleport-it email compression account. Recommended airtime option is the entry level plan, total cost $346.20+VAT for 63.75MB available up front. Additional data usage is charged at $5.39/MB.

If this is of interest then get in touch by Saturday 25th May. Further details and small print can be found on our Facebook page and website)

We look forward to meeting and supporting the crews of the #MAZAB19!

Partner Sponsor – Mylor Yacht Harbour

We’re excited to be one of the official sponsors of the MailASail AZAB 2019.

As a first class marina, moorings and full service boatyard, we offer the ideal base for your race preparations before setting off from Falmouth on the 1st June, or for the all important repair work when you return to the UK.

Located just one nautical mile from Falmouth Harbour, we are literally just around the corner and a short sail to the start line.

Our Marine Team staff are highly trained marine specialists; engineers, electricians, shipwrights, GRP laminators and finishers. If it involves leisure and small commercial boats, there’s little we don’t do.

Our services include boat lifting and maintenance facilities – we know a good racing scrub can sometimes give you that extra knot! We also work closely with our friends at Mylor Chandlery & Rigging, based onsite here at Mylor, who are experts in rigs, sail handling systems and running rigging.

At our marine parts & sales outlet we also have a vast stock of marine service items, electricals, engines and engine parts from leading marine brands such as Raymarine, Suzuki, Volvo Penta, Vetus to name a few, so you can be sure if you need anything, we’ve most likely got it.

Once you’ve finished the race, you can leave your boat with us while you make arrangements to take her home. As one of the biggest boat shore storage facilities in the southwest, our valley behind the harbour can house up to 500 boats. With electricity and water supply throughout, we can store your vessel ashore or in our Marina with peace of mind.

And it’s not just boats we accommodate for – we can also accommodate you! Our onsite 4 star self-catering holiday cottages are located in the heart of Mylor Harbour, ideal for if you want to stay a little longer, rest up after the race and enjoy those beautiful views.

We’re perfectly placed near Falmouth, with visitor berthing and mooring options alongside excellent shore side facilities. Get in touch with the team today to find out more and to make a booking.

Partner Sponsor – Rustler Yachts

Rustler Yachts are proud to be a British-based company, supporting the AZAB once more.  

Here at Rustler Yachts, we are renowned for quality, service and great value. We create hand-built, bespoke yachts using a combination of traditional methods and cutting edge technology – with superlative quality found in every curve, surface and detail.

Our first Rustler 36 was built in Falmouth in the early 1980s, and since that time, hundreds of owners have enjoyed the experience of having their new boat designed and built by experienced British craftsmen. Rustler yachts are manufactured on the premises, not just assembled, with every piece of engineering, moulding and joinery carried out by our staff, in our factory – we do not out-source.

We are passionate about the yachts we build, and know that this passion is shared by our enthusiastic owners. We are proud that our company is personal and small with its own distinctive character, which is evident in our yachts.

Each Rustler owner enjoys a uniquely close relationship with the team that builds their boat, beginning with the process of individually tailored design and build, to hand-over trials and maintenance throughout their ownership. We encourage our customers to get to know their boat from the egg, as it were.

We like our customers to sit in their new half-built boat and discuss the process with engineers and joiners to have a true understanding of the whole boat and confidence in their design.

In the hundreds of models built, no one boat has ever been specified the same.

If you want to own a yacht of renowned design, and legendary capability, a yacht which is the benchmark by which others measure quality, then Rustler is the right choice. Get in touch today to find out more.
