US Sailing, The Moorings Announce Partnership

US Sailing, the national governing body of the sport of sailing, and The Moorings, the world’s premier international yacht charter company, have announced a partnership in support of sailors and sailing organizations in the U.S.

With more than 50 years of experience providing yacht charters all over the world, The Moorings is world-renowned for its fleet of yachts custom-designed for charter vacations.

“US Sailing is proud to welcome The Moorings to our family of partners,” said Alan Ostfield, CEO of US Sailing. “Our fundamental goal is to expose more people to the joy of being out on the water. Both the seasoned and inexperienced sailor can expect an unforgettable sailing adventure on a Moorings charter, and we are proud to assist in bringing that opportunity to our members and sailing community.”

The Moorings will offer US Sailing members discounted rates on charters. An additional discount will be available to US Sailing Keelboat schools and students. Lastly, US Sailing will offer sailing community members four opportunities in the coming year to win a charter of their own.
