Voltz International’s popular Voltz Energy drink is fuelling the crew of ‘Lancelot’, a 40 foot Beneteau First Yacht taking part in the famous ARC transatlantic Yacht Race which started on 22 November. Lancelot is owned by Britannia Corporate Events and skippered by Chris Jackson or ‘Jacko’ and a team of seven shipmates. Lancelot currently holds the record for a Beneteau 40.7 racing in the ARC with a crossing time of just over 15 days, 10 hours in 2009 and the crew will be trying to break that record.
“The race which can take up to three weeks, from Gran Canaria to St Lucia, will see 300 yachts attempting the 2,700 nautical mile ocean voyage but only one crew will have the Voltz energy drink on board,” confirms Rob Arnold, CEO of Voltz. “Voltz is a healthy energy shot and its active ingredients are a complex of B vitamins which aid mental function and play a key role in energy production – essential for such a gruelling transatlantic race.
“Many high-energy drinks are not actually very healthy,” continues Arnold. “Some for example, contain large amounts of sugar and caffeine, which although give an instant boost, can make people “jittery” and result in a “crash” several hours later. However, the Voltz energy shot is a completely different concept as the concentrated bottle of energy does not contain carbohydrates and only supplies two calories, giving the consumer an energy boost without the sugar and high concentrations of caffeine which will be essential to keep the crew’s concentration at peak levels for the duration of the race. The compact 60ml bottle will also be handy as space on the yacht will be at a premium.”
Wholesalers and multiple retail chains currently stocking the Voltz energy shot include Turner & Wright, TJ Morris, Euro Garages, Snax 24 Ltd, VWT Distribution and regional outlets of Cost Cutter and Spa. In addition, Voltz recently announced a deal with franchise company Card Connection which will see the energy shot distributed to retailers throughout the UK.
Voltz International Ltd is the exclusive global distributor of the Voltz energy shot health drink manufactured by Medichem International.
