Partnerships

Sailing is one of the fastest growing sectors in sports and adventure lifestyle marketing. The sport offers significant untapped opportunities and commands the attention of a global audience. Here in the Americas, the new breed of high-performance sailing competition offers businesses the chance to be associated with innovation and achievement, while our recreational brand connects with the broader creative class lifestyle.

The primary visibility vehicle of US Sailing is the US Sailing Team, comprising our Olympic and elite professional athletes who compete globally on a full-time basis. As the only national governing body for the sport in the United States, US Sailing sanctions national competitive series as well as regional and local events both on and off the water. We also support sustainability projects and social initiatives as well as community-based access and diversity projects. Whether you want to become a partner of a US Sailing Championship, present a US Sailing Event, sponsor a Youth Training program, or collaborate through our social initiatives, we have a property to complement and supercharge your marketing strategy.

YETI Coolers was founded in 2006 with a simple mission: build the cooler we’d use every day if it existed. One that was built for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than for the mass-discount retailers. One that could take the abuse we knew we’d put it through out in the field and on the water. One that simply wouldn’t break. Yeti decided early on that product innovation would come from necessity and firsthand experience – not from market research and data analysis. Today, YETI products perform when it matters most - whether that be an excursion into the remote Alaskan wilderness, chasing redfish on the Gulf coast, or just getting together with friends in the backyard.
