“ANA Windsurfing World Cup Yokosuka Convention” began on May 11, 2017.
The world’s highest windsurfing competition “PWA World Cup” was held in Japan for the first time in 24 years, and ANA is taking the title sponsor for that title sponsor.
At the venue, a lottery for winning round trip air tickets for ANA and experienced section for uniform for children are also available, so people who do not like windsurfing seem to be able to enjoy family shifts.
Let’s look at “PWA World Cup” where ANA will be the title sponsor.
What is the PWA World Cup?
PWA World Cup is the world’s highest windsurfing competition officially recognized by Professional Wind Surfers Association with headquarters in the United States.
Every year, it is held in 10 countries around the world, mainly in Europe.
In Japan, it was not held last in the event held in Omaezaki, Shizuoka prefecture in 1993, but it was decided to be held for the first time in 24 years in 2017.
In 2017, we will begin with Korea and continue with 4 cities in Japan and Spain, Denmark, Germany, USA, New Caledonia.
In 2017, the ANA Windsurfing World Cup Yokosuka Convention Executive Committee and PWA concluded a contract on December 20, 2016, and the holding of the tournament was officially decided.

Why ANA became the title sponsor
Why did ANA be the title sponsor of the PWA World Cup held in Japan for the first time in 24 years?
This is a plan of 2015 for the proposal activity “ANA Virtual Hollywood” for ANA Group employees to realize their dreams. It seems to have been realized, Taro Fujimoto who is captain of ANA is the inventor.
“ANA Virtual Hollywood”
Do you know what “ANA Virtual Hollywood” triggered ANA to become the title sponsor of the Windsurfing World Cup that was held in Japan for the first time in 24 years?
“ANA Virtual Hollywood” is a voluntary suggestion activity by ANA Group employees aiming to realize a project that gives customers “emotion” like Hollywood movies that impress the big audience.
We will recruit participating members who sympathize with ideas beyond the affiliated companies and business lines, develop planning, and make a presentation directly to the executive officer.
Since the beginning of FY 2004, more than 1000 employees have participated, and a number of proposals have been realized.
In the past, we are also commercializing magical speakers through which music flows directly from leaves at “ANA Virtual Hollywood”.
It seems that various projects have been devised within the company.
Taro Fujimoto, captain of the ANA Boeing 767 aircraft
It is said that Taro Fujimoto, the captain of ANA, was the inventor and himself enjoyed windsurfing since college, we celebrated the World Cup for the first time in 24 years this time.
After Mr. Fujimoto himself took the opportunity to negotiate with PWA after the in-house proposal to hold a tournament at Virtual Hollywood in FY 2015, we have successfully held a tournament.
Mr. Fujimoto said at a press conference that “Windsurfing will rise as a consequence of the event, and it will be a big festival in Yokosuka city.”
We would like ANA to become a sponsor of F1
If you frequently view this blog, you are likely to be told that “it is also a story of F1”, but if you are watching the sponsorship for these sports events or the sponsorship agreement for athletes, I think that I would like ANA to be appointed as the title sponsor of F1 Japan Grand Prix.
Since I am writing about F1 and airline company in the past article, please also read here if you are interested.
It is a condition that is not the only one in the F1 Japan Grand Prix world in 2017 that is not used.
If you keep going, F1 ‘s Japan will be gone.
Then, it will become difficult for Japanese airlines such as ANA to utilize the marketing platform F1.
Just the other day, ANA Europe (ANA Sales Europe Ltd.) is closed, and as the line of sight gradually faces Japan, it will become increasingly impossible to reach customers in each country.
It is the state which is not used only in the world of F1 Japan Grand Prix in 2017.
If you go, F1 Japan will be gone.
After that, it is difficult for Japanese airlines such as ANA to use the marketing platform F1.
Yesterday, ANA Europe (ANA Sales Europe Ltd.) is closed and the line of sight gradually faced Japan, so it will be increasingly impossible to reach customers in each country.
On 11th May 2017 the world’s best windsurfing event “PWA World Cup” held and opened in Japan for the first time in 24 years.
ANA is taking the title sponsor of the event.

As ANA’s pilot is also involved in the process of ANA’s appointment as the title sponsor of this event, how about visiting the spectators?
