True to its core values, the IronFX Group has decided to continue its long-term partnership with the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC). The global multi-asset broker is the official sponsor of the 2019 D-Marin ORC World Championship, which is going to be held between May 31st and June 8th, 2019 in Šibenik, Croatia.
Approximately 1,000 sailors with 150 professional sailing yachts from around the world will be divided into three categories and compete out of Marina Mandalina and into the Adriatic in both Inshore and Offshore stages. The event is organized under the auspices of both the ORC and the IRC, the two international offshore rating systems.
The IronFX Racing Yacht will take part in this year`s prestigious regatta representing Cyprus with a crew of 14 and with Nicolas Epiphaniou as Captain and Dimitrios Alevizakis as Tactician.
This year’s participation in the ORC is the continuation of a successful presence in international competitive sailing for the IronFX Racing Yacht. During the 2018 ORC European Sailing Championship, the team won 2nd place in the Corinthian Class and 7th place overall (including the professional crews), whereas during the 2017 ORC World Sailing Championship the team won 5th place in the Corinthian Class and 14th place overall (including the professional crews).
This continuing sponsorship is highlighting the IronFX Group’s focus to continuing and expanding its longstanding CSR program by enabling the Group’s strong business ethics to have a valuable impact on the communities it operates in.
In this respect and within its CSR program, the IronFX Group will continue selected sponsorship initiatives that share the company`s vision, competitive spirit, and pursuit of excellence.
