"In powerboat racing timing is everything, a split second decision can win or lose you a race, so who better to have on board as a sponsor than world renowned watch makers Rotary," she said.

"Their new range of unisex contemporary sports watches, Rotary Aquaspeed, is perfect for me whilst racing."

Managing director of the Dreyfuss Group Victoria Campbell said the company is extremely pleased to sponsor Shelley throughout 2010, adding that this is the first time in a few years that the company has entered into a sponsorship agreement with a sportsperson.
