MIP sponsorship helps sailing success

[Johannesburg, 5 August 2013] - Many companies these days sponsor various initiatives to improve their standing as corporate citizens. Very few, however, have the opportunity to sponsor a staff member and watch proudly as he breaks records and raises the local profile of an international sport.

For the past three years, MIP has sponsored Mark Teasdale in his prize-winning sailing endeavours, providing the support that has allowed him to place among the top entrants of some of the world’s toughest regattas. A developer at MIP for many years, Teasdale’s amateur sailing provided a good opportunity for the company to get involved in a green initiative, as well as support a valued employee in his pursuit of sailing excellence.

Teasdale explains that sailing was a family pursuit, and that he picked up a love of the sport as a boy sailing with his dad. Today, he has represented South Africa in various sailing classes in world championships, earned his provincial and national colours for sailing, and counts first-prize wins of prestigious competitions among his achievements.
