Organizers of the Van Isle 360 International Yacht Race are pleased to announce TELUS as the new title sponsor of the 2011 event. The eighth edition of the race, which is now named the TELUS Van Isle 360, will take place from June 4 - 18. 'We are very excited to welcome TELUS aboard', says Janine Bell, event manager, 'and are looking forward to working with TELUS to ensure the best race to date.'

This year's sold out event features 42 boats, ranging between 25 and 65 feet, with professional and amateur sailors competing side-by-side as they race around Vancouver Island in a series of 10 legs. Every boat taking part in the race will sport TELUS Van Isle 360 decals on their bows. Skippers view these bow decals as a badge of honour and many leave them on for bragging rights long after the race is over. Sailors competing in this event must meet stringent safety protocols and have extensive experience before being accepted to participate.

'The Van Isle 360 is an exciting event for Vancouver Island and we are so thrilled to lend our support as the 2011 title sponsor,' said Marshall Berkin, TELUS director of Customer Solutions Delivery. 'Many of our team members and customers live in the communities that will host this year’s race, so it’s a big honour to have the TELUS name on these incredible boats as they race their way around the Island.'

With the race oversold and TELUS as the new Title Sponsor, this year's race is set to another amazing event. 'We can't wait to get the TELUS Van Isle 360 Yacht Race underway', states Bell.
