Where the funding goes:

Logistics: Transporting equipment and personnel around the globe.

Equipment: Finding and fine-tuning equipment is so important in the Finn class. Many sailors are making do with second-hand or borrowed equipment. To reach their peak they need the best available. One objective is to fund a container of boats to travel from event to event, allowing the sailors to focus of preparation and fitness, not logistics.

Training: Finn sailors like to train hard, together. FINNTEAM will largely be based in Valencia and through generous deals with the Dinghy Academy, many are already subsidized, but the resources are limited.

Education: Providing young sailors with an education is an integral part of modern training practices and while not directly funding the education, the FINNTEAM will assist sailors to find suitable education opportunities and any transition expenses.

Resources: A long term plan for FINNTEAM is to create a sailing academy in Asia or Australasia to complement the one in Valencia.

Media: Without promotion and media exposure there is no story. From 10 to 20 per cent of the budget will be directed towards regular media updates, video, photos, press releases and social media. It will promote the sport, the sailors and the SPONSORS.
