Vendée Globe: BIOLINE worldwide tour!
Bioline has seized the opportunity to sponsor a skipper competing in the iconic race of the Vendée Globe 2016.
Last February, Bioline AgroSciences became a subsidiary of InVivo Agriculture with the ambition to become the cornerstone of the development of the biosolutions market. To show its strategic development and ambition, and to strengthen its notoriety, Bioline has created a new graphic identity, more dynamic and refined, and a new logo. Alongside this new visual identity, Bioline has seized the opportunity to sponsor a skipper competing in the iconic race of the Vendée Globe 2016. Indeed, being a partner of this competition will mark a turning point for Bioline which will thus assert its strength, its brand image and its worldwide reputation.
The Vendée Globe is the only non-stop round the world race without assistance and is widely regarded as the most difficult race in the world. 30 skippers set sail on IMOCA monohulls for a worldwide tour that will take approximately 100 days. It’s a race that occurs every four years and starts from the Sables-d’Olonne in Vendée, France.
On November 6th, thirty skippers will set sail solo around the world on board their monohull’s. Among them, Enda O’Coineen, the first Irish skipper to race in the Vendée Globe will benefit from Bioline’s support. The boat will sport the two emblematic colours of the brand: blue and grey, and we hope that they will bring good luck to Enda!
Bioline is also proud to be Enda O’Coineen’s sponsor because he is the founder of the Atlantic Youth Trust, a charity related to youth development and cultural integration that delivers a world class educational programme on a purpose built tall ship for youngsters. As a result, the visibility and the notoriety of the Vendée Globe will help it raise funds for this cause to which Bioline is happy to be associated with.
