Serco Sponsors Navy One in Yacht Race

Continuing to foster strong ties with the Royal Australian Navy, Serco is a joint sponsor of Navy One, the Beneteau First 40, competing in the 75th edition of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

   This is this first Navy entry in the Sydney Hobart race in 18 years and the crew aim to be the first Armed Forces yacht to reach Hobart (on corrected time) to win the Oggin Cup. Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Jonathan Mead RAN officially launched Navy One and its crew in December at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, the home of the Rolex Sydney Hobart. Fleet Marine Services Contract Director Mark Shannon was presented with an official crew uniform, which Serco has sponsored. Serco Defence Managing Director Clint Thomas, AM, CSC, said the team is thrilled to sponsor Navy One and be part of this iconic Australian sporting event.
