Today, US Sailing, the national governing body of the sport of sailing, and AeroVanti Club, a high-growth startup that’s re-imagining private aviation and yachting through inclusive and competitive membership options, announced a three-year partnership through the 2025 season. AeroVanti Club will serve as the Official Private Aviation and Yachting Membership Club partner of US Sailing, bringing approachable luxury and convenience to members of US Sailing.
As part of the multiyear partnership, AeroVanti will be the title sponsor of the U.S. Team Racing Championships and support the U.S. Offshore Championships for the duration of the partnership, as well as US Sailing’s events during the Olympic Sailing Trials in January and February 2024.
AeroVanti Air Club recently expanded by launching AeroVanti Yacht Club, offering members a luxury yachting experience unlike anything available today through its unique membership structure, combining the affluence and comfort of yachting with the incredible value and convenience unique to AeroVanti Club members.
“US Sailing is proud to welcome AeroVanti to our family of partners,” said Alan Ostfield, CEO of US Sailing. “AeroVanti has redefined the private aviation and yacht membership industries with an innovative approach that has increased access to private travel. We are proud to assist in bringing innovative and exciting travel opportunities to our members and sailing community.”
AeroVanti Yacht Club features four of the most distinctive vessels around. The flagship is “Casino Royale,” a 108-foot Sunseeker Predator featured in the James Bond movie of the same name. The Yacht Club also features “Sweet Caroline,” a 127-foot luxury tri-deck yacht, “Permit,” a 50-foot Buddy Davis fishing boat, and “En Garde,” a 50-foot Cookson racing sailboat fresh off a podium finish at the Port Canaveral to Key West Regatta.
“We’re thrilled to partner with an organization like US Sailing, particularly in support of the country’s best sailors preparing for Paris 2024,” said AeroVanti Founder and CEO Patrick Britton-Harr. “We’re looking forward to offering US Sailing members an approachable luxury experience and a better way to travel at an incredible value.”
Since launching in July 2021, AeroVanti has experienced 400% growth, led by multiple M&A events to support expansion, two historic fundraising rounds of more than $100 million, and partnerships with The Chicago Cubs, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The Preakness Stakes, Spire Motorsports, the University of Maryland, and University of Central Florida. AeroVanti was named a 2023 “startup to watch” by both the Baltimore Business Journal and the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
