With ROCKWOOL’s support, the Danish team will compete in the global league that will kick off in Sydney Harbour in February 2020, and take them around the world to destinations in the United States, the UK, and on to other venues that will be confirmed.
From ROCKWOOL Group CEO Jens Birgersson: “Sustainability is at the very heart of our business, with our products used to insulate buildings, save energy, and ultimately contribute toward global climate goals. Sailing is a sustainable sport and a perfect fit for the ROCKWOOL brand. As a Danish company operating internationally since our earliest years, we’re proud to bring a Danish team to the world stage for the first time, and are very excited to see them race in Sydney next February and then onto other cities across the globe.”
ROCKWOOL North America is proud to support this initiative and its two stops in both San Francisco and New York City in 2020. We will be engaging with local sales/specifications members in these cities to ensure we maximize the potential of this sponsorship. More will be communicated about this as we get closer to the individual race dates.
