PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (June 13, 2016) – US Sailing, the national governing body of the sport, and The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, have agreed on a new multi-year sponsorship extension. The Moorings has been an official sponsor of US Sailing since 2012.
“US Sailing and The Moorings share a strong passion for sailing,” said Jack Gierhart, Executive Director of US Sailing. “We are both committed to offering more opportunities for sailors to get on the water. We believe this relationship reinforces our efforts to inspire sailors to stay active.”
The Moorings sponsorship offers value to members of US Sailing through special discounted pricing on their products and services. US Sailing members can redeem this special offer by visiting the My US Sailing member portal at ussailing.org.
As part of this partnership, The Moorings was a featured Platinum level sponsor of the 2016 Sailing Leadership Forum last February in San Diego, Calif.
“As a leader of the yacht charter industry, our mutual goal is to grow sailing participation; whether it is through learning to sail, exploring new cruising grounds, or racing in the Caribbean and beyond,” said Josie Tucci, General Manager of The Moorings. “We are delighted to continue supporting US Sailing and sailors nationwide.”
